UNITED STATES OF STRUGGLE
Police Murder in America
Gerald Lenoir Delivers his second book of poetry riffling on police murder past and present and versifying on the current protest Movement for Black Lives. His poems are potent and prophetic, personal and universal in their themes and messages.
Do you love money and use people?
Consume, contrive, connive.
Greed, fear, hate.
Suppress, and suffer in silence:
One must descend to the depths of the darkness
in order to rise to the height of the light.
Dare to embark on a visionary journey through the fragmented
unconscious of the West, and with courage, face the Shadow.
“Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is…if it is repressed and isolated from consciousness, it never gets corrected.”
“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds!”
- Bob Marley
