Can You Stand? (Jingle’s Thursday Poetry Rally- Week 30)

Can You Stand?

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery
When Bob said it we weren’t listening
Just look at the state we’re living in
The people are suffering each and everyday
And everybody got so much to say
But the words that they speak
Come out so weak
With no substance, and no hope
They walk around as if life is a joke
And when we try to reach new levels
And share thoughts with like minds
There’s bound to be some left behind
And I feel as if, we can let them drift
Cuz it’s a trip you must embark upon on your own
It can’t be force fed, to those who are dead
In mind, body, spirit and heart and soul
So search for God on this trip and be smart
Get your priorities in order
Cuz you are stuck in a new world order
But this world will fade away
When your nights turn to day
And the darkness creeps up over you
Then you won’t know what to do
You’ll be scared, shaking in your bones
You’ll be trying to phone home
But you never been home
You were stolen from there
And made to be ashamed of your hair, and culture
And your connection to God
So you’re running around in a fake façade
Obeying the rules of the land
But when it falls will you be able to stand?

I graciously accept. Thank You!

  3. Wonderful thought on the day of judgement and I liked the way you brought in that we are not in our real home but in a false illusion that this world is and when it false, do we have the strength to stand on our own, our positivity and goodness… Good one..

  4. This is a great thought and write.

    “And made to be ashamed of your hair, and culture
    And your connection to God”
    See this constantly…..seems like assimilation.

    May your legs stay strong…..
    WOIH

  5. …You were stolen from there
    And made to be ashamed of your hair, and culture
    And your connection to God
    So you’re running around in a fake façade
    Obeying the rules of the land
    But when it falls will you be able to stand?…

    …real poetic talk.
