Living Free?

Filed under: Poetry — Tags: — migueltio @ 2:01 pm

Do we now have a

new norm that every

community event has

the threat of masses

fleeing in a swarm

being randomly

attacked

by someone’s mindless

firestorm?

Are we living in 

a reality of all the

movies and video

games every made

where everyday life

includes masses of

mankind being daily

assaulted?

We want our freedoms

we do not want to be

regulated in any way 

but once upon a time

those freedoms did

not include the constant

random attacks on the

many at any event or 

any place an any given

day.

WE WANT OUR FREEDOM

 is what we say but in 

getting ARs or adaptors 

off the streets many 

shout NO WAY when 

more security is brought

up many in charge 

interject NOT TODAY

leaving school principals

local mayors and other

community leaders with

jaws dropped and no

words to say as we

hear on the news of

yet another melee 

why is this how

freedom is lived

WHY IS THIS 

OK??

Now what was once

thought in big cities

has found its way

to plague small towns

random shootings

and carjackings

why do all of these

scenes have to be 

how freedom looks

and why does 

gunfire have to be

how freedom

sounds?
