"Some things will never change"---Tupac


Activate my heart
Send electrical pulses through my valves
Make it pump -- Let me live
Inject unconditional love in the bottom of my heart
So that I could feel
For everyone

Activate my mind
Let's walk through the solitary confines of my brain
Where I am kept -- to myself
Where my thoughts are locked away
Never shared
Treasure my insanity -- to be sane is rare

Activate my talent
Seek my dark lyrical poetry
And spread it upon this dark world
Let it seer, let it sizzle, let it ripple
Into the waters, just a little

Activate my voice
Let it speak out to the world
I'm an activist
Let it educate many lives
I'm an advocate

Activate my heart
Activate my mind
Activate my talent
Activate my voice
Activate me.
Activate me.
Activation complete....


The author's comments:
I was inspired by my favorite rapper of all time, Tupac, to write this piece. He had a great skill to speak out about the things he believed in. He was an activist, poet, and actor. Sometimes he wrote passionately, sometimes he wrote obscenely. He's a great inspiration to my work.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
Bad decisions make good stories.

Wonderful poem. It reminds me of the reason I started to write poetry.
