Hurt & Lonely
Hurt and lonely
Broke amongst thieves
and hoarder of dreams
But none to be seen by daylight
A hopeless dreamer
Behemoth and to be laughed at

My white brother
My white brother sometimes I hate me and want to be you. Being white
is always cool. No prejudice in school and all the girls like you.
People won’t think twice before they sit next to me and the cops won’t
pressure me. My white brother don’t you see your legacy is unblemished
and you reign king. Without all the negativity it takes to be me.
Living a life perceived as a thief or dummy, no matter how nice I
dress they call me bummy. What a funny world this is. You can be my
brother and bring ease to me. Maybe I can finally live in piece like
you. My white brother wouldn’t you like that too.
