An I Nation

One ’s self is what matters most, a rule with no exception.

And this generation here has gone far with that perception.

This is an I nation you can hear it in their songs.

It is established in their demeanor with no intent on being wrong.

I have this, I have that, I am this, I am that.

The world revolves around me and that is the way that I act.

There is no sense of unity.

Where is the We.

Because all my lyrics consist of I, he, or me.

Music use to speak for more than just one soul.

It use to be the voice of the people with more than just one goal.

Stop war, stop poverty, stop corruption, stop anarchy.

We can change the world with these songs if you just believe.

And awareness use to be the key.

But now every song is strictly about me.

I'm Rolando, I also go by the poet name SkyBlack some of my work is available for viewing in the Penman lounge. FreestyleVision has given me an opportunity to express myself more, outside of the poetry. This Biography is difficult to write, I’m content on writing about almost anything but when it comes to myself I sometimes draw blanks. I’ll start of by telling my origins. I’m from New York (the best city known to man) and I still reside there today. I love music, art and of course writing. I’m a big horror film fanatic and even though this is so, my favorite movie right now is Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street. Not a true horror film, more like a gory musical, but one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. A true classic. I just saw this movie for the first time like two weeks ago and already watched it like eight times. But besides all that I’m just a average guy writing my thoughts and hoping the world enjoys what my mind concocts.
