Ekphrasis in Verse 2018

"Fate” by Amiri Stewart


by Aashe Massenburg


Most of us are sleep Very few awake The ones who are awake know we are in too deep We have to save ourselves Even though we are too late Only time can tell what will be our fate


The world will keep turning But as the time goes by Plenty more will be born Even more will die


Most of us are sleep Very few awake The ones who are awake know we are in too deep We have to save ourselves Even though we are too late Only time can tell what will be our fate


I AM TOLD INDIGO CHILD YOU HAVE RESPONSIBILITY INDIGO CHILD DON’T FORGET ABOUT REALITY INDIGO CHILD YOU’RE THE ONE TO SAVE THE TRAGITY


Most of us are sleep Very few awake The ones who are awake know we are in too deep We have to save ourselves Even though we are too late Only time can tell what will be our fate


Love is the answer to all our problems Hate is in my DNA due to slave trade Many don’t have sympathy anyways I don’t care at the end of the day Most of us are sleep Very few awake The ones who are awake know we are in too deep We have to save ourselves Even though we are too late Only time can tell what will be our fate


My third eye was open When reality hit it closed Having battles with my heart and mind Soon I will arise


I’m becoming aware again My world is tearing apart The funny thing about it is I knew before I came here I knew right from the start


When I was born I didn’t cry
