Who Are You

Who Are You

A Poem by ferousfinite
"

This is madness!

"
Breathe in and focus
exhale to know this
the news is bogus
and the stories are crap

Just stop and think
about your thoughts
about your feelings
what and how you think.

Consider that you are brainwashed
on every level of every day 
on every level of our entire lives
boys, girls, men and wives

Things we got mad over
depressed o'r
sad and glad over
your loyalty is sound

We are bound
by our Culture
it is what made us afterall
but we must question

IS race even real
Does violence and hate appeal
Is Love your weakness
what does your heart reveal

where your mind is
in a lost place
lost in today
lost in play

Does it work
this is what you know
No, not any more
day after day

You no longer have the answer
only a short term solution
with just a little bit of pollution
petty politics and a sad day

For our leaders, parents and teachers
the cycle of today
the milieu of our way
It IS ALL WRONG - Is what we say

Now IS the time to say
right here and right now
Is OUR TIME
This IS our time

Many before and many ahead
We are the ones that are not dead
Now is the time to make a difference
Or we can just die doing the wrong things

So If you aren't dying
and aren't worried about this or that
if you don't live in a box 
and aren't dumb as a box of rocks

Who are you?
What does your heart say
where is your good today
are you kind

forgive your friends
for they know not what they do
love and be kind
show them the right way

Do this for you
Be Real
Be Human
what do you have to lose?

Very thought provoking poetry you pen'd up. There's some kinda smell of virtue deep in your words that hustling the world to be real .. & leading it to its own "originality". No one gets anything to be fake so it's fair enough to render such a message to the world: "Be Real!" Nice imagery!

short phases are very effective and the inconsistent rhymes adds empowerment to the content.
Nice!
