Be Still the Pendulum



Be Still the Pendulum

I heard it said
that I should tread
so lightly on the shimmering thread
that dips and weaves into the web.

I heard it said,
that men are weak,
corrupted, earthbound - gagged from speech - and
those perfect words would set us free..

I heard it said,
a terrorist
makes fear, exchanging power for it.
So who's perpetuating it?

I heard it said,
with one white lie
they’ll turn our rights to merchandise,
in a blink they'll trap our minds..

I heard it said,
our voice is dead,
those watchers living inside our heads,
but
I say give us freedom instead..
I say give us freedom instead..
I say give us freedom instead..
