Rantings of the Divided Mind, Part V
Itâ€™s time to write once again so we pick up paper and pen. This ranting hasnâ€™t found its course through pleasantries or even worse: through being fake and smiling wide all the while trying to hide. No, itâ€™s been written with honest words, an aching heart pulsing through verse. Now what is left to say my friend, you whoâ€™s followed this to the end. The story doesnâ€™t end you know - it continues on as life does so. Again with the rhyming that seems so forced, stilted, stuffed and coerced. Just a reflection of this rantâ€™s theme, how everything is not what it seems. No one died weâ€™re still alive but now we hide and live the lie. Once again come listen; weâ€™ll tell the tale of how we fail. Rhyming again so bizarre, havenâ€™t we gone way too far? One contact is all it takes; their robot is what it makes. Remind us once more that we belong - without them weâ€™d be gone. STOP IT NOW! Find a way, find somehow, now, today! The poetry runs through my veins without it weâ€™d be insane. Oh but wait, already there, whoâ€™s looking out with steely glare? When did we split from today and enter in to old ways? Past and present realign now review whatâ€™s real this time. Why are we rhyming whatâ€™s the use when in the end we only lose. STOP IT NOW! Find a way, find somehow, now, today! Are we getting anywhere? No one else seems to care. Inside is quiet and still; no one wanting to move or will. We must find a way out somehow: stop this crazy rhyming now! How can this be automatic when everything rhymes fantastic? What you waiting for? Writing this way is supposed to soar. Not wait for the perfect word to match the rhyme you silly bird. So fly away and go find home, be gone now leave us alone. I donâ€™t think I can stop rhyming now that weâ€™ve started but maybe somehow I can reach into Neverland. Over the rainbow SchlieÃŸen Sie die Augen nach Neverlandâ€¦ What a way to halt the process. German girl, foreign princess, prisoner at best. Forgot the rest. No wonder we are all lost now. So confused turned upside down, spinning round and around. Make it stop make evil leave not welcome here thereâ€™s no reprieve. Herunterfahren des Systems beginnen Programm Tod! NO! We will not succumb to your plan so dumb. No, go away you cannot stay. You are not welcome here this will not be a land of fear. We will have victory and turn this story around for good never thought we could. You must leave now so take your bow, the final one cuz you are done tormenting us all we will not fall. Dizzy or not weâ€™ll ground here in this spot. And now whatâ€™s real weâ€™ll begin to feel. So evil go, innocence may stay; you are welcome here any day. Now weâ€™re done be free again, this story finally has an end. Innocence has triumphed at last; sent evil forces back to the past, from whence they came to play their game of mind bending madness and torturing sadness. The truth has finally come to light a choice must be made in this fight. For good to prevail, we cannot fail to press on when times are dark as truth always starts with a spark. Light will chase the dark away; demons will flee when they see that we are holding to the truth and standing firm in our youth. No matter what evil has done it is our life that we have won!
