    Chaos reigns inside of me..
    Emotions raging,
    anger blazes.
    These fools;
    meaningless pawns
    enrage me.
    Arrogant fools,
    living life...
    Their fantasy...
    Living the illusion of ecstasy.
    all their hopes;
    all their conceited dreams, ill-fed.
    their lives bred in hypocrisy,
    their honour fallacy.
    the use of power to supress dreams,
    yet tyranny strengthens their schemes.
    tension slowly building
    stretching, bulging.
    yet all calm remains,
    utter calm...
    so deadly,
    so mysterious.
    their rule on the verge of destruction,
    their name to tumble into eternal abyss.

    Bonds wrought of power shatter;
    in my ears freedom rings.
    will no longer bent,
    with power to no longer submit.
    I ache for change.
    my being calls for it,
    my soul burns for revolution,
    my heart screams for revolution.
    I ache....
    I cry....
    I yearn......
    my mind seething,
    I fight to hold on.
    thoughts churning,
    mind chanting,
    change...
    change....
    pain?
    What pain?
    No pain...
    fear?
    What fear?
    Fight.....
    yes fight!
    Fight I must,
    for there’s no pain;
    there’s no fear,
    only change.
    ....I
    ..I...
    I must fight for revolution.
    all must change
    and as I state my resolve
    they fan the flame;
    souls crying out,
    they scream,
    they scream for resolution.
    but its too late,
    much too late.
    there will be change!
    there will be revolution...



    But how?

    That was a well worded verse..flowed so easily

    gave off the same anxiety that we all should be feelin...we shouldn't be comfortable with only a spec of what we kno we as a people deserve

    Yes...change is good...

    keep the flow goin brutha,

    You powerfully explain how change is needed, and end the poem with the question, how? You have read the minds of many, flow on poet.
