They called me freak

Wiped their feet on me
Perfected their punches
Inserted their genetic codes
Marking me as property

They tagged me
With their “fair market price”
When the markdown reached zero
They drove me into the wilderness
Left to my own devices

From my vantage point
Atop a barren rock
A tantalizing notion
Began to nag at me
“Lay your body down here and sleep forever”
I didn’t give audience to that voice
While I breathe I know
I still have choices
But the choice I made was much the same

I kept on breathing
Breathing and watching
From my barren rock
While the world passed by
Existing in a dream
Where it all happened to me
I didn’t make it happen

Now I’ve been kissed awake
By forces of nature
My brothers, my soldiers
Given the gift of ME
By those who made me see
I do have worth
Hell, I’m priceless baby!

Know what perps?
I want to steal a jeep
Hop in naked
And tear up your shores
Tires spitting sand in your faces

I want to be the magnet in peacock hues
In a crowd of grey conformist suits
Come blazing in from space
Hit your world like an asteroid

I want to try something that scares me to death
So I’ll never be afraid of anything again
Sing my song of ascension
And make you dance to it

Miracle, Mandela, Malala
Mentor me, moving forward
Out of my wreckage
Up from my cell
Eclipsing all oppressors
In the shadow of my wings

I say it proudly
If freak I am
Freak I shall be
I dare you to have a problem with it

-- Dedicated to those I call my brothers

This is freakishly good ...
Experience is a brutal teacher.

I see you not as a freak
This judgement truly false
Ours is not to convict
But check another's pulse

Do not let them define you
Let your colours fly
Your power is one of self
You learned from on high

Your brothers have lifted you up
You've taken the chance to speak
But it is not you, it's them I see
Who truly are the freaks
Presence is the key, for all we have is now.
All we ever have is right now.
