I grew up with certain freedoms,
Though I was never really told,
I only understood a world of fiefdoms
From books I read. I wasn’t bold.
My dreams were made with managed
Challenge, the bounty being compassion
Beyond a society of greed is the adage
Spoke a loud in a personal fashion.
The limits began when in later life
What we discovered together in name
Became the seedling of confusion’s strife
The sort leaves my eyes seeing shame.
We are a world driven by our insanity
If we believe this our lovely reality.
