I sit and ponder

men and freedom

The declaration

that all men are created equal

looks nice on paper

The reality of the matter

men are born:

Handsome or ugly,

some rich, most poor

charismatic or lame.

The rich and talented

claim all the beautiful things

houses, cars, women,

while the poor

struggle to survive.

They will never see us as their equal

nor prove themselves to our own morals.

WE ARE NOT FREE

THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM HAS NEVER BEEN WON

Society is weak,

escape if you can.
