Human, Snakes, and the Lost (Louis Toliver, Jr)


The most complexing and painful question that I realize I may never answer is: Why would someone wake up each day and make it a goal to hurt others physically or emotionally. I don’t think there will be a clear answer, but I do know that there are three types of forces in nature: humans, snakes, and the lost. And though my choice to stay in my state and get the best education I could possibly get in a place where snakes have chosen money over life, I realized I am sick of snakes hurting the people I see everyday. I am sick of all these lost people in Louisiana fallen victim to the games of evil mostly through the uses of words. As I have been a lost individual like the ones I love, I am sick of them being confused on who or what to blame for why they are hurting. I am simply here to tell you in the most simple and plain fashion that the reason you are hurting, Louisiana, is that snakes disguised as us are slowing injecting us with their venom, right here in our own home, they have chosen to destroy our self-esteems and our humanity and that is clearly a lack of concern for life.

I’m Not a Nigger (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

You called me a “nigger” One word to rule me  Your word bullet of hate 
You’re life is a such hell  You think 6 letters  Justify your fake inferiority 
Just 6 letters  I got those and 20 more  Together
My mind is bulletproof I’m so far above you  I can call you scum in 6 different languages 
You can’t hide in white pride You are hate  You’re the nigger
