I'm a racist in a rainbow suit,
with one eye slanted,
the other straight as
the hair that hangs down to
my broken shoulder blades
as I sway to the music in my head

I'll tell you the truth,
I had a dream once,
I had a future coming on,
I had beliefs once
But then I grew up.

I'm a follower leading blind sheep,
with one hand on the bible,
the other turned up,
one lone finger in the sky
that hangs over us all,
but it divides as we fall,
and we're signing peace treaties
as we head for more bombs

I'll tell you the truth,
I had a dream once,
I had a future that was bright,
I did believe once
But then I met the walls around me.

I'm a liar weaving truths that I'll feed you,
with both lips on the tip of my emotions,
we're singing praises to ourselves in the mirror,
behind our backs we're killing off morality
It's this thought I had,
and even though it was inspired by a book I hate with a passion,
[To Kill A Mockingbird]
It's got some major points in it,
and I,
personally,
love this.

Don't steal,
you didn't write it.

I hate that book too. :] But your poem is really spectacular. It's so powerful, and the flow is so smooth. I absolutely adore the repeated stanza, especially it's last line. "But then I met the walls around me." Simply amazing. Just breathtaking. Excellent words. :jawdrop:

Wow... I really, really love this one. The language is rather simple, but powerful. And the whole thing flows really well which helps bring all the points together.
Good job.
