I issued a challenge to create a piece of art from the perspective of a film character. Below is a poem by Kiks Cu in response to that challenge.
Denial is the biggest shame in my own arsenal,
The underdome over my personal dome can evaporate my mouth overdose in foam.
Pleasure and price a connecting link,
You can ink yourself to remininse, blueprint to press a future of success in one rinse.
Blink before you commit.
Spilt second actions can lead,
To a Bed missing one of its leg.
What goes up must fall straight down in hell crying to beg.
bleed like a freefall in a parachute falling with only a connecting peg.
Controlled me like a white maid,
Caring only about getting paid,
Raid my house,
Parade like rats but whos the mouse,
So chase when you can,
Or even better spit out what you cant pronounce.
Take the journey,
Step in but step out,
How determined are you to deter, use what you’ve been taught,
Or still living in a hole pitched from blur ,
The job we do is to practice the drill,
Pain aint no trill,
Honesty and training is the medal of honor in skill.
imperfect the perfection when my signal bar couldnt find its reception.
but do not lose the disk of life that isnt a decline,
straight line that is flowing the incline.
Digging deeper isnt a pot of gold,
So wake up and find a true mine.
Look foward and break apart,
What doesnt kill you,
Only makes happiness even longer,
Tattoo start from one and become twos.
Its never like how it use to.
Hate of the pain,
the strain on the brain,
a migrane from fire lit the inside with methane and inhumane.
An african kid, having no place to run,
Getting pinned from a stun gun.
Taser to the chest.
Sitting in a hostel,
Where it felt hostile,
Memories back then,
Memories cant change history,
Rewrite scripture which is no mystery.
Stab in the back,
Lose when it hits the floor,
Straight to my core.
More and more you try to endore the endorsement.
But compensation is a guilty enforcement.
It is what it is,
Theres to many why,
why is? what for,
to make the why is simply you n yourself cant rely.
