Torture Has Consequences



Black people in America are tortured every day
No one cares
The propaganda is so profuse
Disinformation so prolific
No one knows the truth
No one ever sees
No one understands
The worst predators are protected as victims
While their prey
The most vulnerable
Are left with nothing
But human rights abuses and slander
Paramilitary operations
No one cares
Regardless of what happens to us
It's always our fault
That's the constant verdict
No one cares
Groups of men can torture, molest, rape, prey
Nothing ever happens to them
To them it's funny
Enslavement is rewarded
Evil is rewarded
Abuse is rewarded
Predation is elevated
The more evil
The more power you have
That is The West
We're tortured every day
Without let up
No one cares
Least of all leadership
Who are the most predatory
But I'm NEVER going back
'til my last breath
Every once in me will be me fighting back
While the inhumane treatment of enslavement
Is nothing more than a game
Funny to these racist extremists
To the most extreme sadists
The treasonous
Including leadership
Still raping after all these years
Nothing changes
But I'm not submitting to anyone
Who abused me at any point
Least of all when I was a kid
The predators
Are treated like victims
Leadership is overrun with them
No one cares
If you don't have white skin
You don't get to live
They brag about it
"Some live their own way
Some don't get to live their fullest potential
Some take their own lives"
It's funny to them even as they lie and abuse
Even when they kill
It's all a sick game to them
Serial predators and leadership is apart of it
I grew up watching evil men plan this agenda
Now I'm trapped in it
Now I'm trapped in it
Now I'm trapped in it
It's a game to these people
Who have been raping and trying to kill me
Since the crib
Isolated from everyone
Everything
Stalked
Abused
Enslaved
Strangled
Trafficked
From the crib
"You were born to be a slave"
Is all I ever heard my whole life
All I ever hear still
Tortured every day for trying to escape
The is the true Lolita Express
Lolita was my mother
I'm already being punished
So I'll keep screaming it
But no one cares
It's funny to leadership
To watch their co-workers rape me
Steal everything I've ever owned
Everything I have ever created
Everything I have ever designed
Everything I have ever written
They pass my name, life, creations around
To all their deviant friends
They laugh about getting away with slaving me
Black, white, Asian, Hispanic
You name it
No one cares
But I would rather be tortured to death
So we're clear
Than to be anywhere near
Any filthy, racist predator
Or apologist
This place is evil
Yet the targets get all the blame
While the predators get immunity for preying
My whole life taken by predators
I WILL NEVER BOW EVER
I also won't ever forget
All the men and women
Who told me
I did this to myself
Ever
'Til my very last half breath
Simply because they wanted something I have
It's fun y to all of them
To cut me open and watch me bleed
But I won't be the only one
They took my life
It was fun y to all of them
No one cared
No accountability anywhere
But people are so hooked on false narratives
That's so much more important
But I'm not going silently
Anywhere
I would rather be tortured to death
Than subjected to deviance
It's not rocket science
It's human
I won't bow to any abuser
For that I continue to be tortured
So Be It
