Of Severed and Tempered
Edda of Crows
We are bold to tumble into rigid paths in search of the uncharted,
Gaining truths from those that departed,
Yet painting a new life like an artist.
Why do our hearts remain so guarded?
Bombarded by decisions that temper the heart with burden,
We are thwarted from reaching our personal garden,
A life of unfulfilled dreams drowned in bourbon,
Too far gone to be pardoned.
To carry the weight of crushed promises.
Set adrift in a sea of debt and policies,
Born of wolves hiding in the shadow of false democracy.
Where the prominent mingles in fallacy,
The suppressed bear accuracy.
For ignored they are beneath their majesty.
Effaced for the sake of vanity,
It was all just strategy to shape a country worth imagining.
Bound with the scarlet ink of tragedy,
Ever conquered by brutality.
From birth everything learned is another’s fantasy.
Join the herd and repeat it rapidly before those callous hands join forgotten agonies.
In ignorance we stand selfishly,
Afraid of each other’s complexity,
Believing neighbors to be a potential enemy,
Instead of allies twined by destiny.
Trapped in a zoo of conformity,
Blinded by our jailer’s indoctrinated community,
For the sake of security,
We lose Identity,
Calmed by pleasure to counteract the urge of mutiny.
All for one, and none for unity.
For isolated we become with age,
Dreary in our conventional cage,
Squawking about a fixed wage,
Counting our days backstage,
Ignoring the change we should engage.
