“No Sleep Til”

Nosleep (3)

This is a call and response
For those exhausted by our Middle Age.
Awaiting Renaissance,
But refusing to turn the page.
Fear is seeing the end
And realizing your nonchalance.

If sleep is the cousin to death,
Then apathy is his brother’s keeper.
The bridges you burn,
Cain n Abel the worst in people.

Huckabee’d to believe
One Love
Is not for all to receive.
Because another’s view on Zion
Involves traveling by tunnel,
Instead of the open air we get high on.

No sleep til ______
Haunts my mind still
I hear we have come so far,
Then why am I still looking uphill.
