The Matrix - II

The Matrix - II

A Poem by Diamond

Held within the confines

Of pre-dictated terms

Man is complacently blind

In the shadows of fear of death,

And Oppression, generations old,

That’s carefully instilled

To have them docile ‘n’ tamed.


Leashed to the reality

Perceived of and believed in,

Recognizing the only way

To survive and thrive within

Is to succumb and not question,

The status quo, vile in design

With the intent of having control

On the lives of one and all.


Waking into the dream

Of unconscious and sleeping world

One’s childhood is determined

To learn the customs and norms

And follow them uncritically

Though it’s counterintuitive.

Their inner voice is forced

To be silenced and ignored

In order to maintain

The fallacy of status quo.



And so, the journey begins

Of another generation

Led by the fearful

And completely conditioned.

They give in to pressures

And submit to authority

Seeking validations

To prove their identity.


The soulless however

Deluded in their pride

Distorted in their Existence

That’s nothing but a lie

It feeds on the soul of others

By controlling their lives,

and enslaving them to FEAR

of poverty, hunger and death.
