of course

of course                                    April 28, 2015
of course it feels like conflict
to realize in this game
of power and supremacy you play
you are the pharaoh, the pharisee.
of course it is more comfortable
to find an excuse to convict
me of confrontation
and broken rules of protocol.
of course it feels like inequity
when you see my eyes
and realize you
have earned your sentence of guilty.
how could it go down otherwise
when the powerful and mighty
scream about equality
to the small and meek?
of course you mistrust
the words of the child you oppress
i’ll lie right to your face
because in truth you kill me.
no, you cannot understand me
so long as you attempt
to maintain power over me
to bind and control me.
you refuse to free me
for my service you require
to maintain propriety
and prop up your spire.
of course it is a power struggle
you hoard power greedily
and i must struggle endlessly
to move and breathe and be.
of course it is exhausting
to maintain your image
and keep me in my place
and always have a leash on me.
imagine just a minute
how very tired i must be
how it feels to love
an enemy unconditionally.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
