R A G E (poem)

The main thing keeping me encaged,

A self inflicted venom, provoked by them, who keep the poison hidden, But we are to get rid of it, when we’re hit,

By the unseen needles they need us to be idle to drive our minds off a cliff, dwindling any wit that still remains,

Scooping up any sense of autonomy, monopolizing what is rightfully mine, robbing me blind.

I react against any attack, Meditative prayers send them packing,

They lose, for they’re the ones who signed a pact, to unleash discord among the world,

And what we have is the Word, the righteous vibration that obliterates any trace of wicked existence, it’s already been written,

When you’ve witnessed prophecies unfold, behold your very eyes, it becomes easy to see,

Sometimes it feels like I’m the last one of my tribe, I take no bribes, no matter how high, the price will never suffice eternal life,

Our home goes beyond this earthly dome, no matter how much knowledge you acquire, wisdom is still required,

Even then we’re still limited until our lives become infinite.

Writer. Poet. Artist. Lyricist. Born in December 16, 1995. I'm Mexican-American of Native American and Spanish descent. Southwestern US born -> Grew up in the Chicagoland area including Northwest Indiana (mostly East Chicago) -> moved to a warmer place. I've been writing since like around the late 2000s. Depression and anxiety was swallowing me and I had difficulty trusting others, so I decided to confide in writing. It started off as Spanish songwriting, then it evolved into English poetry, prose, and short stories the more I improved my English grammar and vocabulary. I once had to take ESL classes, until it was determined that I didn't need to anymore around middle school. I became so dedicated to writing that I just did it everyday, and it served as my daily therapy as I was battling with negative thoughts. It put my mind in a state of meditation where it opened me up to many ideas and inspiration that I lived to create. I began to notice that I could write and speak things into existence with my words and actions. I had to find myself, and search for the power of the mind.
