STRONG EMOTIONS

Strong emotions are what I feel now
Stronger than I have ever felt before in my life
Because life is a journey, good and bad happen
But when you realize that you are constantly being set up for the bad
you feel strong emotions…strong emotions…

Politics rule my life…politics make my life bad
I was never even a very political person before they hit me square in the head, quite literally…
I was just living my life like most people, seeking a decent life and happiness
Then the reality of people’s hatred, injustice, cages, fear, and abuse
pounced upon me from its hiding place…with such force
that I have had to live on the edge for years and years
feeling strong emotions…that is where my art comes from
these strong emotions…

However, now in my life, more than ever I am feeling strong emotions
because I am realizing there is no end to this road that they have put me on
I will always have this cloud hovering over my head…here in my homeland
They have no intentions of ever letting me be…of ever letting me be
Someone who really counts…And so I paint another picture, this is my escape
But someday I wish for a real escape to freedom, to count somewhere to my neighbors, my community, the police, the doctors, and others…
Who will treat me as they would want to be treated…with justice, not cages, games and lies

Yes, I feel strong emotions…very strong emotions
