Freedom from Myself (Poem)

Sunlight strikes the eyes of all of us.
The moon doesn’t see everyone.
Chain linked fences control the weak.
Train cars ensure these camps aren’t empty.

When a flower grows in hardships.
Its petals remain scarred.
When a child matures in this world.
His mind remains barred.

I fight everyone around me.
Votes go to the crowd.
One day I will be free.
I will disperse this cloud.

When the sun once again sees my skin.
I will stand on a field deep within,
A warrior of peace and dignity.
One that is free from sin.

No one can really relate
To the battle that I can’t escape.
Father tells me to pick my wars
But youth keeps me from reason.

Wave that flag in defiance.
To all those who tell you what to do.
It’s your life to live.
It’s your time to give.

My blood can vanish into the soil
For I shall disappear into thin air.
I lived by my account through turmoil,
Succeeded, in a life that is far from fair.

Interesting prose. Thanks for sharing! Could you possibly share your motivation behind it? I am not really smart when it comes to poems and their meanings when other people write them. I have written a few and will share them someday, but I know what I am trying to say (most of time). It is different when I write them.

It interesting when you express your inner thought for all to see, at times it can pleasantly surprise and be ultimatly revealing. Gives space and distance and allows for healing.

I want to say thank you to everyone and I must say that I haven't really researched that line of thinking but I love the concept of truth.

I am going to look into satsuma a little bit more.
