… The Light Still Shines

We

Live

IN

A World

Moving 

Fast-Forward

Way Too Fast

Most of Us

UnAble to

Catch-Up

We

Live

IN

A World

Shaped by

The Angry 

Patriarchal

gods

The Authorities 

Demanding

Conformist

Compliance to

The Power-Projected

Through 

Fear & Control & Dominance

We

Live

IN

A World

Confused by

The Past as

Written

In

History Books

Thought to

Memorize through

Establishment of

The Education Systems as

Recorded by

The Perpetrators 

Being

Gaslighted to

Learn 

Their Prospective 

Planned to

Infiltrate

Young Minds

Unsupported by Facts

Strengthening 

Proclamations of

Being

The Being

The Knowledgable One’s 

Polarizing People 

Through 

Doctrines 

Servings 

The Collective Hive

Hushing

The Sound of

Our-Own-Voice

Silencing  Self

Afraid to

Create Conflict or

Opposition 

Against 

The Unknown ‘Them’ and ‘They Know Best’ 

Viewing Open-Dialogue as 

Unresolved Conflict

Masking 

Obedience as

A Desirable Trait

Meeting

The Prerequisites for

Membership

Demanding

No-Opposition

Perpetuating

Fears 

Carved-IN

Through Linage of

The One’s 

Born Before Us 

Afraid 

Opposing 

The Oppressors’

Punishments

Certain to

Reach One

We

Live

IN

A World

Saturated with

Carnival Lights &

Endless Attractions

Available for 

One to Ride

Certain to

Distract One (from)

The Sound of 

Our Own Heart

UnAble to

Hear

One’s & Other’s

SoulFull Cries

Stuck-IN

Endless

Loops of

Suffering 

Each & Every

Single Ride

Round & Around

Once in awhile

Stuck 

Way Up High

In

The Sky

Given a Glimpse to

View 

The World from 

A Different View

Still

Resisting 

The Deepest Knowing

Believing 

We Reached

The Heavens Above

Afraid of

The Potential Hell

Below & Beyond 

The Limits of 

Knowledge 

Granted

In this 

Acceptable Life

We

Live

IN

A World (In which)

Strength IS

Measured by

Severity of Dents 

IN One’s Armor

Ability to 

Withstand

Onslaught of

Assaults 

Aimed @One &

Ability to

Lift & Carry

The Heaviest Load About

We

Live

IN

A World (in which)

Drop of Tear 

IS

Perceived

The Sign of

Weakness 

Measuring &

Labelling

The Weak Ones

Shamelessly 

Displaying 

Real Emotions 

We

Live

IN

A World

Having

Forgotten 

The Art of Communication 

Politely

Responding with

One Word Replies

Even Worse

Acronyms

Yet to 

Be Thought to

Autopilot Memory

Forgetting

Definitions &

Meanings Implied

UnMarked Through

Punctuation Pause

Projecting

Our-Own

Perceptions &

Mis-Judging

Through

The Very Filters of

Own Interpretation 

We

Live

IN

A World

Lost & Confused &

Oblivious to

Own-Purpose

WithOut

The Magic of 

Stories-Shared

Diminishing 

Our-Own

Sense of Self 

IN

Selfish Society

Disconnected (from)

Wisdoms of Tribal Council

Extinct to Silence
