Look around you, tell me what you see
Darkness and blindness have taken over completely.
Some people insist on being bearers of the truth
Spreading lies— falsehood
False facts, false proof
Blind leading the blind— confused
You say the truth, they hate you
Shut you up, berate you
Uphold the victimizer, ignoring the victim
Support the victimizer in destroying the victim
The system is faulty to the core, blatantly corrupt
This is obvious to all, yet the simple choose to ignore
When they see it, despise it
Laugh it off, discard it
Tell you tales of how the system protects them, loves them, saves them
They empty their buckets full of lies
Covering the pit of innocent cries
Then come after you for stating their crimes
Reprimand you for attempting to save those lives
It’s crazy, overwhelming, saddening, disturbing
That people risk their lives in the bid to save others
Instead of being heard, they are being labeled liars!
Meanwhile, the real liars walk free
They are being defended, protected, respected by those who they enslave.
Justice is being imprisoned because money and power
connived to get lies to speak against him.
But it’s no surprise— we are at war!
The truth is forbidden but it’s worth fighting for
This is the moment of darkness; when darkness reigns
This is the Mystery of Iniquity after all.
Iniquity is a piece (rap infused poetry) that sheds light on how fast falsehood spreads and how it is being perceived as truth when it comes from certain “authorities” be it in religion, politics, the media— basically in all walks of life. We’re in an age where many people have refused to reason for themselves, question issues, and see beyond their noses even when truth stares glaringly at them.
What’s worse is that those who actually speak the truth are being castigated and are many times in the minority. They risk their lives to voice out truth but sadly, instead of being heard, they’re being labelled liars. It shows how much people detest the truth hence, the reign of iniquity.
