Beyond Conditioning

Born in Prison

Unable to feel

Constricted reason

Reality unreal

 

Soul denied

Mind chained

Passion they bind

Heart pained

 

Love forgot

Let me breathe

Stifled thought

Set me free

 

Mechanical life

Motions only

No spiritual drive

Robotic and lonely

 

Not enough

To simply be

Call their bluff

Follow a dream

 

All say ‘No’

My every try

Do as told

Believe the lie

 

Against nature

Bend and submit

Power endangered

If I resist

 

In belief strong

Myself confident

I not wrong

Battle commenced

 

Hollow celebrity

Following norm

Hold integrity

Champion reform

 

More than one

Struggle for all

Work not done

Until arrogance fall

 

Faith in deliverance

Mindful balance

Compassionate diligence

In humility advance
