A Poem by ksscampos

a revolted mind yelling for help. to be saved from this insanely path of imaginary freedom



We think we know freedom, 
But we're kindly reminded by the links of the shackles tightening up 
Blindfolded by a beautiful day and the warm sunrise
Soft melody keeps us humming the tunes of oppression
Distraught by sentinel events brought about psychological regression
We vote for whomever we want to hear tell the lies 
And we fight about it, as if any of them are really on our sides
Yet we push on, content with the false sense of optimism
Lights being distorted through the political prism
Sadden eyes bow down to unconscious facism
We rise!
Only to be brought down to our knees by those who serve and protect
Somewhere in the pyramid, ideas disconnect
We fight!
Trying to stabilize the system, only to bring our demise
We smile with permissive disguise
Drowning our sorrows
Once was possible now extinct
Our neighborhoods, more like a precinct 
Offices once held hostage to our votes
Control the masses with many new codes
Yet, we fight!
Loss of hope is non compatible with life
We fight!
Let it be known we will cross the lines
Years of disrespect, will be no more!
Racism, facism... Anarchism! 
Let it be known, for justice we die!
