“Rebuked Conditioning” (poem / poetry)

Freedom’s important, it delivers our dreams,

But you’re trying to redefine what freedom means,

As you discuss in private, what I can and can’t do,

Those same restrictions, are not placed on you!

I feel trapped in a school teaching obedience,

Some rules are illogical, enforced without lenience,

We’re ushered towards being house trained pets,

But this free spirit in me, will not lay to rest.

This piece follows on from last week’s message, encouraging our vigilance, regarding scenarios developed to bring about our eventual subservience.

Our freedom is one of the most valuable treasures we possess, we must protect it as if our lives depend on it, because in the grander scheme of things, they do.

Remember the atrocities of the Holocaust, it was only made possible because regular people in Germany and their occupied territories, chose to follow the orders of a few rotten souls, when deep down, they knew it was wrong on so many levels.

However, we all possess the strength inside to stand up for what’s right, we also have the advantage of vastly greater numbers than those wishing to enslave and harm us, so there is nothing to fear, but fear itself.

Acknowledgement of our individual and collective worth; protection of our human rights; and championing self love and compassion; these are but a few of the many wonderful ways we can ensure our global future, is increasingly brighter and nourishes our souls.

Do not let your free spirit be extinguished, my friends! Stay true to you.

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
