Inspirational Poem

in poetry •  6 months ago

I can't quite say what about this poem caught me, but the simplicity to it had me wanting to read more.

I'm sure we all love a good read. There are those who in fact hate reading, but i'd like to believe it's because they haven't learn to read the literature properly.

This writer published this poem on the 1st of February and modified on the 2nd. In this poem there is a strong message about today's ignorance and how the power of those with evil intent flourish behind the weak. In my opinion.

It's titled "The Fool" and written by shoelesspoet who is also new to the poetry site.

The Fool

Freedom is never given
It is what we earn
Walking among the livin'
The price is what we learn

Existence controlled by another's insecurities
Damages your future opportunities
Though some do not mind being slaves
A person who always craves

Wishing to be free
Scared of the fee
The responsibility is too much to bare
So they live a life far from fair

Freedom is never given
It is what we yearn
Walking among the livin'
Our pride must never burn

Ignorance is control's best tool
For lack of knowledge keeps the clueless fool
Keeping truth far from ears
So they live consumed by unknown fears

Happy to make their master smile
Resisting logic's truth of denial
So master's crime never sees trial
And the slave continues to swallow their bile

Freedom is always taken
It is what we forsake
Walking among the awakened
Our pride is only fake

For if a slave learns of self-value
Then their eyes see the clue
A spark of anger will ignite
And a choice of whether to fight

So a world turns upside down
When a slave strangles the crown
Proving they are not a simple tool
Making the master into the fool

Freedom is what is deserved
It is our God-given right
Walking among the reserved
Our pride can be our light

So very true are these words written by you.
Facade is what we live, life and love we freely give
The points made here are real....explaining some of the untouchables who are unjust and the struggles for the rest of us.
A great coverage of many issues I see
A poem...I learned from thee!

beautiful poem, freedom is a big blessed of God , and the right of every person

The quest for Freedom!one of life's biggest challenges, the search for a better life, a better existence.. And the paradox of our masters holding on tightly to maintain this control over us....a struggle between slave and master since time immemorial.. Thank you for this

I love this poem, freedom is what deserved, but many of us don't want it...
I also like to write poems against our society and our way of living life, but I'm not as good as yo yet.
Maybe in time I'll become!

Our pride must never burn

This should be our aim everyday and every hour

Wow! That's a lovely poem from you! I love it.
Freedom! Where art thou?
For how long wilt thou hid yourself from me?
Long Long ago was I taught by Mandela
That you art not given but earn!
Ive walked through the river and fire just for you!
My clan had gone through much pain and suffering because of you!
Freedom! Freedom! Where is thy face?
I must earn you at all cost and let my clan have a taste of you!
