THE MEDIA’S LIES

Here is a poem I wrote about the media which I thought I’d share:)

 

We see, yet are deceived,

We dream, yet cannot believe,

Is our capability of imagination not enough for us to perceive?

The illusion we consume is a mix of lies, propaganda, not a drop of truth,

You see one half in which you dwell in,

But the other half is overtaken,

By forms of medium that are confined to one vision,

To see the youth brainwashed,

To see them incapable of grasping their inner heart,

That precious mark, where beauty sparks,

You can set your own barriers, but can you choose who is the carrier?

To take that to another platform,

It’s YOU.

To get away from the spoon-fed of make – belief,

That conspiracy of lies,

All that stand between you and the takeover is a matter of time,

Conjure your near future for yourself,

Who stole your purity?

Who robbed you of the ability to taste freedom?

To research beyond and retrieve your inner wisdom,

Look. LOOK. Stand aside.

You were taken in the minute you read that very first line.

You were taken in the minute you stepped outside.

Never mind.

What you assume may be enriched with lies.

 

Let me know your thoughts:)
