Poetexts: Change Is Gonna Come

I’m choking on my emotions

Fed up with my abortions

Aborted thoughts, that is

Thoughts that would lead to actions now nonexistent

Nevertheless, I’m dying inside ’cause I can’t find my way out of this

So many times, I sit and visualize

I see a better life

My dreams keep hope alive

But angst and frustration, procrastination and hesitation cohabitating in my equation

Creating a fallacy of rejection

Detouring me from my destination

My focus now lost in a world wide web of deception

Keeps me on my toes when I should be on my knees




Maybe if I just keep the faith and do the work, the possibilities will turn into my reality

If only it were that easy…

See, I’m tired of trying to survive by working this nine-to-five

Bringing home just enough to make ends meet

And in the process I’m losing more and more of me

It’s hard to get up in the morning since I lost my focus

Putting in 40 hours a week at a job fathered by hocus-pocus

Broken promises leaving me unconscious to my own conscience

There’s gotta be a way out

My change has gotta come

But until that change comes, I have to change me

I need to realize that I is I and I is me

No one has the power to change what’s inside of me

God equipped me with what I need to be free

So, let me tune out the blatant waves of negativity

Change my thoughts and channel the frequency to a station of positivity

One day at a time I’ll regain my sanity

One day at a time my change is gonna come

Then I’ll succeed at truly being who I was created to be

What say you?
