I AM ONE

I am One

Solitary isolation? 

Will that endow on me assurance 

to be confined in seclusion’s mouth 

 

Surely the quiet will help me

indulge in my frustrations 

of brick walls wavering 

from moving aside 

 

 

Camels pass by 

with Elephant cover 

I contemplate life in its mutant smother 

 

Visionary I am 

negative not I 

risk taker determined 

persisting in justice 

festering in solutions 

to life’s resolutions 

 

Passion is my partner 

Giggles is my right hand man 

I am nothing but one 

Why do I give a damn? 

 

Alas one….

 

One…can change societies

One…can transform minorities

One…can rescue the lost

at one paying the cost

One…can rally for injustice

One…can feed the poor

One…can open freedoms door

One…can wipe tears

One…can burdons bear

One…can house the orphans

One…can cover countless sins

One…can make the difference

it only takes One to conquer and commence

 

That’s why I give a damn
