Monochrome

Author:  Evil Twin

 

It’s really not a big deal or maybe it is

This poem is complex and filled with inferiority

 A simple quest to change the world and reset priorities

But vision impaired distorting reality trigger insanity,

I can’t believe my eyes though 

 You say Love is blind? Well, so is hate

But these glasses will make things more realistic, in 3D

Yeah we shall overcome, we sing some songs [Samsung] to keep our vision straight but the vision bent like the HD curve

King had a dream once and a vision, closed his eyes and he couldn’t touch his dreams, turned hologram

Marley showed us the light, we eclipsed it, you move behind the light and see the writings on the wall, projected

But am just talking

I wish we could screen people based on something else because skin shade is just melanin concentration

Those who lack it, got that pink eye, we look at them. Frown and give them the stink eye

But let’s talk about it, cause melanin doesn’t alter brain chemistry, what do you think?

It doesn’t adjust optical resolution, what do you see?

We don’t pump it in the heart, what do you feel?

It doesn’t give you a different scent, what do you smell?

It doesn’t give you a bigger appetite, what do you taste?

It’s not hide covering the ear drum, what do you hear?

Long story short. Melanin doesn’t make sense let alone 5

But am just saying

This hate, cut deeper than the physician’s incision

We tried to forget and move on

 But the pain keep us in a recession

These thoughts, balled up in my head but I can’t tell a vision [television],

 11:59 shot clock, make a decision,

Throw a hail Mary or put off the tell a vision [television].

The message on a hook and reel the generation in, it’s just like fishing

I guess that makes me the fisher of men, a disciple of the vision

Monochrome is not black and white it’s just different shades of grey. One colour
