Race.

I could’ve stayed home today
but I’m seeking inspiration
I should’ve stayed home today
it’s the same old vortex in a class
that eats my heart away
(I wonder what she think when she’s caught up in your lips)
I guess I’m my own inspiration
as always
but
especially
today
compliments
but I’m not feeling it today.
once you’re bruised
it takes more than a day
You’re lucky your troubles aren’t similar to ours,
especially
today
you’re lucky everyday
institutionalized because they don’t want you to win the marathon, their race
I won’t be first in the race
I’m a statistic
it’s probably because of my race
I could’ve stayed home
but instead I’m focused on the race
they focus on my speech, clothes, culture, and my race
they focus on my race
winning
their marathon, their race
you’re lucky everyday.
