Filter or Cage?

Filter or Cage?

A Poem by Cobblestone Traveler
"

Just thoughts

"

Oh the expressions of the souls we love to deplore
They make haste to voice their thoughts, their bias
Their unbridled jealousy, their possessive makeup 
Tainted temperament spilling out to absorb regard

And yet-

Those of us cursed with sickeningly sweet self-suppression
Riddled with similar thoughts, the same embedded faults
But driven by careful character and meddling morality
We choose not to act, we dare not to vocalize vexations

Here's to us in our shell stew, stroking decade-long restraint 
Eyeing, at times, the glimmer in the compiled humanity

At least they have an outlet

Believe It Or Not Believe It Or Not
This is my first attempt at slam poetry, and I'm excited to film a performance of this piece over the coming day.
