Illusions of Grandeur

Bubbles float with the breeze, but who is directing the current?
Ancestral trails left to trace, following patterns setting the pace.
Legacy lineage defined by skin spectrum kinds
- making money, and rules from the inside.
Value compromised with systematic tides,
exploitation refined, and too many died - indigenous genocide!
Consciousness stifled, yet compensated with rifles,
feeling small and dejected, but the insecurities are reflective.
