The World Knows Me Not

Poetry By: Entity

About how everyone thinks they can read me, when they don't know anything about who I am, and how I know there are people like me out there who want to see the system overthrown. Peaceful rebellion is the way. Free Minds Unite!

The World Knows Me Not

Everyone tells me how to be a success,

But they've no idea what it is at which I am best,

They tell me I need to bow down, obey rules,

At least that's what they always tell me in school,

But everything I know to be true came from rebellion,

Being a hellion is all I really know,

So why does the system try to keep me from being my best,

Did I make a wrong decision or is this just a test,

I'll invest in my thoughts and ideas more productive than most,

To all who do the same, I propose a toast,

To rebellion never let them tell us were wrong,

Because when their world falls we'll be rejoicing in song,

I'll wait until the world of polotics crumbles,

And spread the word of peace when humanity fumbles,

Bumbling idiots tripping over their own red tape,

They don't even relize their world is fake,

Why do they insist that their way is best,

If I had the opportunity I'd put them through my own test,

And prove that their way is the way of dying world,

It's time the new rose up and a new era is unferled,

We will recreate the vision that greed has destroyed,

And pull ourselves of this dull empty void,

We will release the energy that we've stored for so long,

And show everybody who put us down that their wrong,

The evil in this world has run rampant long enough,

I'm sick of this world full of people who act tough,

But run away true thought whenever it's presented,

They've put us down for too long, it's time they were resented,

And shown what it's like to be made fool,

They need feel what it's like to be a social tool,

What it's like to be us,

What it is to be bullied

They need to see what I see to understand fully,

That the world is full of evil,

And the good try to stop those who supply it,

But it's not quite enough,

Who are we to deny it,

some day I will gather an army of the free-minded,

And the world will be reminded,

Of the words not often quoted,

By the people,

For the people,

You say your system works,

My response: Duely noted!
