The mocker

Naked,

the truth of self exposed before the thunders of heaven.

Alone,

emotionally naked before all that is unseen,

every breath carries a sarcastic cry:

I have sought love amongst the hateful,

mocking the lover.

I have sought forgiveness amongst the unforgiven,

mocking the pardoned.

I have sought truth amongst liars,

mocking certainty.

I have sought tears amongst the joyful,

mocking laughter.

I have sought freedom amongst prisoners,

mocking release.

I have sought a jury amongst judges,

mocking civility.

I have sought riches from amongst the poor,

mocking charity.

I have sought healing amongst the fractured,

mocking epiphanies.

I have mocked the joker and none understood.

Power to who?

“All we are really doing is fighting to strip power away from the people and place that power into the hands of the mighty.”

Power to the people

an illusion

from the table of the powers that be

crumbs to the people

the powerful direct our fight,

they choose our villain

tell us,

“you must! The days are numbered!”

empowered

we hold clench our fists

scream

march

protest

chant

hashtag

all in the name of globalization,

without a thought

without a question

we move powerless against the powerful.

Politicians give us the thoughts

the voice to scream,

The media gives us the

images

photos that build

drunken delusional rages

or they teach us to love what is evil and

burn those who speak against the myth of power to the people.

Crimes upon the face

And then they said

“We cannot get him/her for the unjustness.

We will crucify,

for the crime hung upon his/her face.”

In that day,

people will be the new religion,

temples decorated and clothed,

worshipped as gods.

Creators of new laws.

Creators of new codes of conduct.

A simple glance found offensive will be deemed criminal and those found guilty when no other charge can be brought against them,

will suffer at the hands of men/woman,

left outside the city gates,

isolated

deemed unworthy to grace the cobble stoned streets with the morally superior.

The scale of social behavior will be defined by over zealous lordships.

Every move watched by the digital eye,

10 years pass

your case can come at any moment,

the guilt of a look

or word of disagreement has all been recorded in the digital book of life and judgement.

Your name is written,

one misstep,

you will be examined from birth to current and dragged through societies social court of mob ruled justice.

The court will come for your job,

your home

your friends

your well constructed life,

only then will you find

None are free.

In this world

“You can not fix a problem if you don’t first understand how the problem was created.” -bt

In world such as this:

A world that judges a person by the color of their skin,

be the person who judges the character.

A world that desires conformity to new social constructs,

be the person who desires each live free from conformity,

be a nonconformist giving people the right to live and face their own consequences.

A world that shuns non linear healing,

be the person who seeks the root of the disease not bandaging symptoms.

A world that desires each person conform to the new godless religion of rulers,

be the person who desires each person be given the freedom to believe as they choose.

A world that seeks retribution off the backs of the working class/poor,

be the person who seeks to help them loosen the gold plated chains.

A world full of chaos,

be the calm.

A world full of anger,

be the peace.

A world full of unforgiving retaliations,

be forgiveness.

Forgiveness isn’t about the other person but about you, and freeing the mind and spirit from a cancerous bitterness. Forgiving allows the doer of the unjust act to face a personal consequence and bring forth lessons.

Forgiving doesn’t mean a person can’t stand against what’s unjust

rather,

requires a stand,

the difference is you stand justly.

A world that generalizes all people no matter color or beliefs,

be the person who sees the individual.

A world that only sees cells made with steel bars,

be the person who understands that not all steel bars are visible. Demanding others think and feel as you do, creates individual solidarity confinements.

Be the person who desires freedom of thought.

Empty booths

Empty booths

We will remain willfully blind although we see.

We will remain willfully deaf although we hear.

We will remain willfully ignorant although we can choose to think.

We will treat political parties like gods.

What if you and I understood, the political parties use us for themselves.

Many Americans have been driven into poverty although they work,

struggling to keep their homes,

live out of their cars,

rent rooms because having an apartment has now become an American dream.

Americans work harder and have less to spend and support themselves.

Americans have been brought systematically to living a life of a hustler.

How many politicians have been driven into poverty although they work?

How many politicians have taken a pay cut or have lost bonuses?

How many politicians are losing their homes, unable to retire, have experienced stagnant wages and have to live out of their cars?

How many politicians have to shower in a public restroom before work?

How many politicians have had to carry the same healthcare that you and I have, how many are unable to afford their medications?

How many politicians have lived under their own polices and how many have been exempt?

We will vote in November for a group of men/women and no matter the color, will live above you and I, will continue to make policies that they will be exempt from, their wages will rise, retirement packages their whole families will live off of and that will be from our vote.

We will vote in November,

we will fight one each other over who the lesser of the two evils are.

We will walk into the voting booths and walk out with the same struggles.

What if no one showed up.

Every voting booth empty.

What if we chose no one and demanded more?

Why do we feel we have to remain democratic or republican?

Why do we keep voting against ourselves?
