The Liberal Paradox

Abandon your hopes
You were born in a wrong place
Too many things to judge
& twice as more to erase

 

What remains on our planet’s soft face
When the pages are blank
Minds outspoken, surrounded
When words are strictly defined
Passions grounded

 

What is?
When you’ve left no more values to displace

 

Abandoned by hopes
Trapped in that old frame
You preach equal rights
To a predesigned counterclaim

 

Building walls, new laws in freedom’s name
Seeking crimes within art
But the words are all said
Just pick a few from those
We left for dead

 

Take away the bones from the living
Wrap our notions
In your concepts
The brain’s living hell
Stop the beats that escape our hearts
Chain the rhythms
Let no thoughts bear flame
Inside this prison cell

 

Take our souls into your territory
Let no motion
Redefine
The world that you were meant to reign
Stain the blood frozen in mankind
With absolute “truth”
Thoughtcrime fading
& only you’re meant to remain

 

To watch over a land
Too proud & faceless to feel pain

  2. Thank you for being courageous and releasing this effing masterpiece :’l “Take our souls into your territory, let no motion redefine the world that you were meant to reign” sent chills down my spine brother. How do you do it ??

      overthinking, I’d say xD thanks for the feedback.. I wasn’t sure if this piece contains a good enough part of the idea I had in my head.. but I guess it does ;D

  3. Another stunning piece by you, friend. Continue using your gift the way you do, weather people comment or don’t, I believe that you inspire them all. Great job!

      well, this comment is enough motivation for me to post πŸ˜‰ thanks a lot, bro..

  4. I’m reading this, & it hit me.

    This reminds me a lot of a line by Mobb Deep..

    “There’s a war goin’ on outside, no-one is safe from..”

    A lot of your pieces have a street feel to them. That edginess that I love, & relate to.

    So good!

      a street feel? that sounds awesome… especially since no one ever mentioned that before.. glad you can relate.. thank you!! πŸ™‚

  5. I’m so on this train of thought lately. We live in a world where we are fed imagery and informatiosn that is meant to desensitize us from seeing what is wrong and immoral. I fear for the next generation because they are not encouraged to think and instead they are encouraged to live blindly. Nicely piece brother. Cheers.

  6. The sounds and rythm of that one! What Γ  delight to read. One more round for me!

  7. Although the whole is outstanding,
    this really jumped at me:

    “Building walls, new laws in freedom’s name
    Seeking crimes within art
    But the words are all said
    Just pick a few from those
    We left for dead”

    Masterfully crafted piece, Poet.
    Thank you for sharing the depths of your reflection.
