View Full Version : Slaves by manipulation

I see you're slaves, in your methods, actions and ways.
Your soul you've betrayed, too late to notice the decay.
Building up since back in the day, you stray,
past the point of no return, is it any of my concern?
Yeah, it is, cause it's my time to learn.
From your mistakes I grow wiser, and from your insults I grow stronger.
It's makes me hunger, for righteousness and virtue.
Although my irritation makes me want to hurt you.
Emotionally or other, I can help but getting bothered.
Spiritually slaughtered, just concerned with buying more.
Past the final door, the door that could be your salvation.
Want to get out by waiting for your train outside the station.
You rape creation, you miss the reflection on your self.
You put your wisdom on a shelf, and let it gather dust.
But it's a must, that you wake up and see what's happening.
Give up that senseless babbling, and speak words that are the truth.
Manipulate your children to regain your youth? Cause you lost it,
you tried to live up to expections, but at what cost, kid?
Or grown-up or parent, your mind's got blown-up and shattered.
Now you're homeless and battered, you got no temple to hide in.
You run away from what's frightening, you're blinded by enlightening.
So you close your eyes and ignore it. Your truth is your coat and you woar it.
Now it seems that's it old and outdated. It's only cause you were always manipulated. And bought it, yeah, the truth, yeah, you sought it. Now you forfeit, that's giving up, it's weak and you know it. You got some chances left, so don't blow it. Embrace your God or your mind and then show it. Become a hero, a martyr, a poet.

Its a good verse and well to the point that it is a simple but devastating verse, placed in a classic effect. Nice , like the way you used the word schema.
