Dna (Human Evolution)

once upon a time, (or so 'they' say) we were just a bunch of monkeys swinging from the vines 'Til one fine day, we fell out of the trees and put our feet on the ground, we lost our tails and shaved our faces and used our brains to make ourselves a 'civilization' HUMAN, HUMAN, HUMAN EVOLUTION HUMAN EVOLUTION 'TIL WE ALL STAND we're on our way to a 'brand-new' age: to 1984, to Huxley's 'brave' new world we've got the technology and science is on our side... we're even re-writing history to prove we're right, there's nothing wrong with HUMAN, HUMAN, HUMAN EVOLUTION HUMAN EVOLUTION 'TIL WE ALL STAND its all coincidence- a series of accidents like Humpty Dumpty, like Jack and Jill, like your girlfriend forgetting to take her pill. NOTHING happens for any reason. there is neither well nor ill just a little more of this HUMAN, HUMAN, HUMAN EVOLUTION HUMAN EVOLUTION 'TIL WE ALL STAND now, we have sky scrapers and urban populations and thirty-one flavors of religion... we have apathy and poverty and HIV we've got controlled starvation, prescribed sedation, prime-time television, public education, and a steady murder rate. we've got everything but a Master plan HUMAN, HUMAN, HUMAN EVOLUTION HUMAN EVOLUTION 'TIL WE ALL STAND

Umbilical Cord

Birthed into igniting flames of poverty, my fade was not much. Breast fed the scares of struggle, I was bound to speak language of ubiquitous freedom. Umbilical cord, though the parting of Bhiko's and Gandhi was known, it pained me to count ours. As I open my mouth, not only do I inhale the cries of freedom seekers, but the appealing gauge grass silently mock the imitated struggle of youth adopting to rainbow nation. I bit my tongue, trying to convey the forced language, well spoked by those who remembered the soldiers not the war. Had this been a dream, I dreamt casualties in war, thou the parting of us. I never understood the colour on my skin, but never took grunted the portrayed images in the labour room. Umbilical cord, the medium of love to vein, I relate to emotions conveyed on the faces of ones titled poor.

It Tires Me

It tires me to see poverty prevails Among some people, but the rest live In luxurious life anytime and anywhere, It toils me to see the tired people sad Because justice is not fair anywhere, It tires me and it toils me to see sad People in the streets anywhere and I stare at their eyes to see that sadness And how it's drawn on their faces, I see and my seeing things look different Because I want to draw a picture in my Mind about people and their sadness in life, I am tired and I am sad seeing people Sad about things in life even the trivial ones, so That image I shape will be a great attempt To draw a future perspective towards helping People getting new and pretty horizons in life.

I'M Always Like This

I speak when I am silent and I feel greatly those silent words and looks In others' faces, Silence is my language that I always love to say something to others, My silence does not mean that I prefer not to talk, but It is the pretty language that others understand well, I stare at those graves' silence When I'm there, I understand that pretty silence of the nights and I love the pretty face of the silent moon, Silence can break those chains that handcuff Any free man anywhere, I abhor that ugly silence of that Abject poverty anytime, I love to talk to the silent people Anytime, anywhere, and everywhere, I live in my silence just To be or not to be Simply because I am always like this. ______________________________________________________________________
