Fear Me

Fear Me

A Poem by lindsay

 There are few of us left
or few who let it be known.
Those who break form the shell,
to make the world their own.
Our cries can be heard
all across this "great land"
yet, we are the ones who
suffer for taking a stand.

All across the machine's news,
are ads to be yourself.
Oh really?
So is that why I sit here left to spend 90 days in this cell?

Iron bars and cuffs,
do not frighten me.
You infact, you are the scared one
as far as eyes can see.
You cower in fear,
to see  us all win. 
While we raise our fists in glory,
your face loses that devil grin.

That's right-fear me.
Fear us all.
Don't like what you hear?
Deal with it.
We are done answering your call.

Do you still think you are so great?
Do you really believe what you say?
How can you live with your lies everyday
as your citizens smash the state?

So sit you office
as we take a stand
throw us in jail
and fire the rock band
take down our signs
because we want to help this land
steal our every breath,
because we want to lend a hand.

 

What I am laughing at
is that you still think pointing guns will do.
Ha.
Fear us all.
Fear me.
I do not fear your empty guns or you.

Intense! I share your same sentiments. Man leading man is like the bliind leading the blind. While they sit in their chairs smoking their cigars, innocent people are dying...babies are being robbed of their future. This verse really touched me:

Iron bars and cuffs,
do not frighten me.
You infact, you are the scared one-
as far as eyes can see.
You cower in fear,
to see us all win.
While we raise our fists in glory,
as your face loses that devil grin...
because this world is like being behind bars. People tell you what to do, what not to do, where to go...freedom is just not being free. This reminds me of a piece that I wrote called-Idocies War. You should check it out. This was an absolute great read! WEll done! Thanks for sharing.

I detect a rythmic chant or rhyme style rant that is perfect for protest poems. I also like the form you chose for the presentation. It adds to the punctuated anger and defiant tone.

This is great, despite lacking a good flow or rhyme pattern. It has a defiant tone to it, with added strength and true sincerity! From what I have seen of your writing, you are a special individidual and not afraid to share your true beliefs!

By coincidence, I see our very individuallity as being threatened, both my excessive state intervention in our lives, the power of big corporations and the media. Artistic integrity is also under threat, of course. Like you, I also feel the need to share my true thoughts and feeling with others. I would like to add, that this poem does not seem sentimental or over-emotional. Great writing, and thankyou for adding it to my Group, "Twilight's Disciples"!

there is a temendous force of revelation and cause that gives the form substance and a quality of
thought is shows in the ease in which your words flow, with meaning and passion and today's times
as seen through the eyes of a poet, the artists who capture day to day life and those things
that effect the heart most, as you have shown us with this excellent poem fully engaging

Great poem, and beautifully written. The texture of the poem was very good, and over all the poem was a boggler. Thanks for sharing ☺

I like the phrase "machine's news." It just seems to capture the whole feel of the poem. Very well written and I love the idea. It is a very "free-thinking" view, and seems to be something that a good deal of this generation has lost.
