In Truth A Fool

I am a fool

A dreamer worn

No thoughts new

From illusion torn

 

None listen

They don’t hear

Oblivious distance

Never near

 

I shout at walls

Scream in the dark

My verse crawls

Easy to discard

 

Whisper of truth

Mirror of distraction

Earned each bruise

Resisting inaction

 

Calling all islands

Linking our chain

Our survival demands

Unity in disdain

 

Our good company

Against the grain

Confronting hypocrisy

Social hurricane

 

Game escapes me

Unable to conform

Obedience not easy

Riding the storm

 

Think me alone

At your peril

Many a drone

Find compliance sterile

 

More speak each day

My sisters and brothers

Entering the fray

Fighters and lovers

 

Neither fortune nor fame

History won’t know me

Ego and pride away

Sacrificing for free

 

I am a fool

Love my choice

Compassion my rule

In peace I rejoice
