They use forces,

to make us do,

what they have decided,

what they want us to do,

what they have already decided,

to make us do,

with their forces.

 

They tell us what to do,

what to say, 

how to behave,

how to dress, 

how to live,

to make us do,

what they already told us.

 

They give us words,

they want us to repeat;

when to say them'

when to accept defeat.

When to use them,

when it serves them,

to feed them back,

with the words they gave,

giving us weak.

 

They ask us to explain;

want us to define,

why it matters,

why it means something,

why it is important to us,

when they knew along,

we stood up for what we believed in.

 

They have no where to run,

who can escape the past,

who can outrun the future,

who can stop this moment,

when all we have is this now,

as we chase ourselves in circles,

accomplishing nothing,

with them.

 

 

They, are we,

us,

manifested.

We, are them,

history,

destined.

 

Nothing will change,

until we change.

 

They use forces,

to make us,

use forces.

 

We force us,

making us,

like them.

 

And, 

then we,

think about it,

again.
