Rise Up!

by Mike Wayward 3 years ago in social commentary

Dystopic Poem of Hope

Illuminati confetti, embers raining down

New World Orphans, scouring the ground

Fighting for survival, trying to see another day

Praying out to God, while the Godless prey

Preying on the hopeless, the poor and meek

Denying asylum, to those that seek it

Seeking an audience, to let them speak their mind

But deaf ears and raised noses is all that they can find

PLEASE DEAR GOD! WON'T YOU LISTEN TO ME?!

I sweat and I bleed, with hopes of being free!

Freed from this torment, free of this pain

Free to go back, to living again!

Though I try to thrive, I'm stuck with strife

Searching for a purpose, and some meaning inside

Please lord, give me strength, that I might rise

Rise up to the challenge, and take back my life

RISE UP! RISE UP!

And take back what's mine

RISE UP! RISE UP!

I won't step in line

RISE UP! RISE UP!

I won't be a slave

RISE UP! RISE UP!

Cuz my life has value

But it's not for trade
