In A World
Questioning minds stretch awake,
with dawns promise still just below the rise
push button, alarm slapping, last warm skin cuddle
ingesting bean brew, the question arrives with bells on
what has to be done, first things first, prioritized strategy
daily life becomes a poorly written sit-com series,
the broken-laugh-track delivering happy hours to wash
indentured servitude from tired hands.
Blindly we navigate,
learning is acquired on a need to know, basis.
In a world where there are only questions,
remorseless morality lacking empathy,
creating endless wholesale lots of
pain, pain, pain,
heartbreaking, brain splitting pain
powerfully the prideful rib stands on a balloon carpet
while lesser evils make back room deals with forced marches
programming theft, watching the world burn and churn, apathy
tastes like a dead mans penny.
In a world where we are responsible for everything
held in place by judges unjust demanding slow change
looking into boxes watching a devils soap opera
a legacy left for our children, raised unfit for slavery.
In a world where true power is suppressed
sleeping rebellions keep one eye open, one ear pressed to the steel
listening to the tide, gently rising, accepting, gathering in parched throats
(I can’t breathe)
In a world where there is only one race with one job to do
divine human awakens, claiming swords forged in
sacrificial blood fires of our missing, our dead, our lost
we can not practice being what we are,
raw and radiant,
the front line awaits the order to charge
while the devils play fiddle up on the ridge,
one last show, they spin in glory to their own glory
silently change surrounds the hill from the bottom up
rebellions require numbers,
a unified race, with one job to do, bear mindful witness
to the boiled down army of aroused ushers
hosting a dying world’s requiem, to greed.
Nothing good ever comes free.
A Poem in progress…it feels a little choppy…I’m gonna let it rest for a minute while I do the day job and try to paint a little….I dunno, everything seems hard these days. I hope you are well. <3 Love always, HA!
