Rebellion.

Rebellion.

A Poem by Desert Rose
"

Heathcliff.

"

Against me, 

Against you,

Against nature, 

Against time,

Against society,

Against people,

Against reason,

Against law,

Against creed,

Against dogma,

Against ritual,

Against religion,

Against virtue,

Against sin,

Against lust,

Against conquest,

Against aspiration, 

Against hunger,

Against pain, 

Against distance,

Against body

Against mind, 

Against ego,

Against fear,

Against power,

Against attribute,

Against happiness,

Against sadness, 

Against madness,

Against love,

Against hate,

Against emotion,

Against distortion, 

Against myth,

Against truth,



Against everything that makes sense on paper,

Against everything that makes us human,

Against death,

Against life itself,




….We're gonna Live….

This is f*****g fantastic! I really love this! Coming from a punk musical background, this poem reads to me like a lyric sheet. I think you really hit the idea of rebellion always being against something and not necessarily always for something. By repeating the word "against" and changing the following word the poem has an energetic and almost violent pace as the reader can practically tear down the list rattling off a laundry list of things to rebel against.

This also reminds me of the importance of questioning everything, never taking anything as it is fed to you. I like how you think!

And great song!

Thanks again Valentine :)
This really does show the negativity of today's society. It seems like everyone has something to complain about, and easily forget about the good things in life. It's a lot of the little things that make life all worth it. Well done :)

Yes, if we can overcome all that negative thrown at us as people by those who are in 'power' we will live. We must need the strength for the rebellion.

So true, and I'm certain there is a lot of will out there right now.
Very interesting poem. Makes you stop and wonder: if we reject all of these things that make us who or what we are... what do we have left? What are we actually made of? The form of this poem reflects the insistent nature of the theme very well. Nice work!

Strip it down and what is there? Mostly an illusion that gives way to a mindset not of our original own...we are spirit in flesh not the other way around...strip it down and just be - which is to live...perhaps...potent :)
