Prison

 

 

 

Take me captive,

only then can I be free.

Make me your slave,

and only then, will I see,

 

just what it is 

that this life can be.

Sinners lie where 

believers bleed,

 

and they claim faith

is all a man will ever need.

 

Inside this cell, I celebrate 

being freed, the smell of fate (or death)

does this new consciousness breed. 

 

I breathe, and with every breath,

I ponder how much air is really left.

 

I lay with liars, cheats, and killers— bereft

of any morality— for whom these bars

are a mere formality. They’re trapped

regardless, unwittingly taking part in this

chess match between their God and the Devil. 

 

I give a nod, but I don’t revel 

in the sight of a rebel turned dog

being brought to slaughter.

 

Our cells (or fates) are sealed

by soldered iron and we soldier 

little hope for a physical escape. 

 

Our souls (or chains) are the only 

witnesses that remain in this lonely 

corner of existential consciousness. 

 

Politics and poetry are provincial

matters in this new order of spirit. 

 

The border of our cage is only

an obstacle if we can’t clear it.

 

Do you hear it? 

The sound of a machine (or paranoia)

hums low as it surrounds 

men who never had the sense

to run from gun smoke.

For many, words are their last bit of hope.

What it must be to believe in a God 

that wants to see you broke. 

Because only a man with nothing 

can know. 

 

Know the smell

of death and the inevitability of hell.

It’s he who will turn to God with

his knee knelt. 

 

Take me captive,

only then can I be free.

Make me your slave,

and only then, will I see.

 

Inside this cell, I celebrate 

being freed, the smell of fate (or death)

does this new consciousness breed
