Blind Faith - Poem by Chris Leermakers

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS COMING
MIRROR CRACKS APPEARING
ISN’T IT SO REVEALING
REVEALING
CAN YOU SEE IT
I DON’T THINK SO
CAN YOU FEEL IT
WE DON’T KNOW
BUT YOU’RE STILL HERE
NOT LETTING IT ALL GO
NEVER LETTING GO UNTIL
YOU FALL INTO YOUR PIT

THE WEAK, THE MEEK
WON’T FOLD
YEAH WON’T CHOKE
YOU WONT HEAR ANY CRIES
I’VE GOT THE ACE OF SPADES
AND THE KING OF HEARTS
ALWAYS HAD THE UPPER HAND
WHILE YOU BORN WITH YOUR HEAD
IN THE SAND

WE WONT CHOKE
CHOKE ON YOUR FORCE FED LIES
PLEASE SEE YOURSELF
THROUGH YOUR OWN BLOOD SHOT EYES

ANOTHER SILLY TEST?
I’M NOT YOUR ENEMY
OR THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE
SO FUNNY REALLY
OR DO YOU EVEN RECOGNIZE
WHO IT IS, WHAT IT IS
CONFUSING YOU
DON’T YOU WANT
MY BULLSHIT PROOF VEST?

SPEAKING TRUTH IS NOT EASY FOR SOME
AND SOMETIMES IT’S NOT MEANT TO BE
AND DOESN’T COME FREE
BUT IT’S JUST SO EASY FOR ME
IT’S JUST WHAT I SEE
I’M NOT A PROPHET
I’M JUST ME
YES I’M JUST ACTUALLY
FREE

BETRAYAL AND SELF DENIAL ARE EASY
HAVE YOU LOST
YOURSELF AGAIN
LED YOURSELF ASTRAY
NOT ME
KEEP YOUR CRITICISMS TO YOURSELF
NO ONE IS LISTENING
NO ONE IS WAITING
EVERYONE HAS STOPPED BELIEVING
IN YOUR GOD DELUSION TODAY

IT’S YOUR BLIND FAITH
KEEP YOUR OWN BLIND FAITH
BLIND FAITH
STOP STEALING FROM THE LIVING
..AND THE DEAD
WE’RE NOT INTERESTED
IN WHAT YOU SAID


JUST KEEP FOLLOWING
YEAH, KEEP SWALLOWING
YOUR OWN BLIND FAITH
HOOK, LINE, FOOL AND SINKER

Is YOUR gOD IS ON YOUR SIDE?
IT’S JUST YOUR OWN STUPID PRIDE
SILLY MONKEY PRIDE
TRIX ARE FOR KIDS
THE YOUNG AND FREE WILL DICTATE YOUR FUTURE
OLDER GENERATIONS HAD THEIR TIME
YEAH HAD THEIR TURN…
AND WE NEARLY ALL BURNED
LIKE RABBITS RUNNING
AND TRAPPED IN A HOLE
THERE IS NO SUCH THING
AS CONTROL

JUST A DELUDED MEMORY
YOUR DELUSION
YEAH JUST YOUR OWN MIND CONTROL
YOUR OWN CONFUSION
JUST MISERY
IT’S JUST YOUR BIG FUCKING EGO
CONSUMING YOU
JUST LET IT GO
ARE THOSE CRACKS
ALL MIRROR CRACKS
RE-APPEARING?
CAN YOU SEE IT?
I THINK SO
CAN YOU SMELL IT?
WE DON’T KNOW
CAUSE I WONT CHOKE
ON ANY FORCE FED LIES


IT’S YOUR BLIND FAITH
THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL
AND GLADLY NOT MINE

I’M NO PROPHET
I CAN JUST SEE
YES, I’M JUST ME
THE FREE
JUST ME
YEAH ALWAYS WAS..AND STILL
YEAH FOREVER FREE FROM ALL
PEOPLE LIKE YOU

    FAITH KEEPS THOSE THAT KEEP THE FAITH - Mother Teresa. A well articulated poem nicely penned to capture the essence of the poet's convictions. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
