The Difference Between Free Will and Being Free

The Difference Between Free Will and Being Free

A Poem by Matthew D. Ford
"

A piece about smart and dumb people, basically...

"
There is a difference between you and I
You run, I walk
You're half-witted, I'm of intellect
You quit, I keep going
It gets worse, It gets better
 
There is a difference between you and I
You let go, I hold tight
You don't shut up, I know when it's enough
You're consumed by your own insanity
I'm coherent and have yet to lose my mind
 
There is a differnce between the moon and the sun

The land and the sky
 
The Earth and the Universe

Between hell and Heaven
 
But you're in hell
Not free
Your bound by the belligerence of the chains
That hold you underneath
 
An underlying secret
You hide from all the rest
A secret of disgrace
Displeasure
Hatred
Vile feelings
 
Ranting on about your nonchalance and idiocy
About your free will to do anything you want
But you are bent in your own guilt
Your own doubt
Your own displeasure
Your own shame and sorrow
 
The hell with your ignorance
Because you don't know the meaning of actually be free...
 
...So screw you

Author's Note

Matthew D. Ford
I got bored so this is sort of a "vent". I like to express my feelings through writing, of course. And about that "screw you" part in. I didn't want to curse.

I sense a flood emotions behind the gloss of educated restraint... to tell someone off in a graceful manner is an art in itself, very well written!
