RISE!!!

Tic...

Tac...

Tic...

Tac...

Moments going by...
gliding through with every beat
teaching
yet not being heard.
The ears of the heart
deafened by the vices of the flesh,
oblivious of the Ocean,
barely dipping toes in the sea
thinking...
the government is taking care of me
Obama, Santos and Putin!
I am free!
the UN, EU, and the new born prince
with so much love
Exxon, CIA, GE...
taking care of me
hahahahaha
The eyes of the soul,
blinded and delighted
by the macabre and glamorous show
Fox News, CNN, MTV
Oh you get to choose!
You think you are free?
Thinking reality is just what we see?
And seeing humans as a thing
aborting it
starving it
raping it
using it
Wait...
that IT, is alive!!!
has a heart and a mind
just like you and me
why remove him from his dignity?
Entertained by trivial news
misused.
You get to drink a beer and watch tv,
but are you really free?
you get to work from 8 to 5
counting other people's money,
making them rich
while chasing that richness yourself tirelessly
But are you really free?
just following a man made idea of success
lots of money, lots of sex
maybe then I´ll meet another
then our drunkness can be shared
then you wonder...
why didn´t marriage work?
where is the peace?
where is the love?
Not where the measure of my greatness
is MY own "success"!
So you think that you are free,
because you voted?
Politicians put you in debt and kill your children in war!
No, no, no my friend
Your freedom does not depend on them.
Choose to seek truth
Truth will set you free
showing you reality is more wonderful than what we see
and moments will glide away no more unappreciated
for the hopes of the enlightened
do not rest on the fretting promises of a hateful empire!
Come with me my friend
we may be diverse
but diversity is a gift to you
and a gift to me.
It complements
and makes
UNITY
and now a diverse people
ONE
YES WE CAN!
