Image for the poem Ideology


Meddlesome whispers
pushing static through the mind  
Is it me?
Am I the sinner
keeping this lie so intertwined  
Is it political?
Do I purchase or do I walk?  
Do I dance to their music?
Do I talk the penchant talk?  
Making enemies with my judgement
oh my words sometimes betray  
Do I have the freedom to speak as I want to
or is it your words that I must say  
I am envied
despite lacking wholesome merit  
I don't want this cloak you've left me
but you're forcing me to wear it  
Confounded by your desires
that infect my valid thought  
It's their edict corrupting the innocent;
their souls should not be wrought  
Confusing them about their bodies,
their minds are fresh to mold  
Are they escaping the skin they were born within
or just doing what they're told?  
Soon the truth will be bleary,
by then it'll be too late  
Left to exist as a mere stranger
will forever be their fate
