American Dream Poetry: The Revolution

Updated on June 9, 2013
Source


I made a resolution

To raise a revolution

Of carnage, destruction

And chaotic mass confusion.


I’m sending subliminal messages,

To disrupt your sensibilities.

You can silence and censor

But your efforts are in futility.


I’m here to wake the minds

Of future generations,

To end this cycle of oppression

And political denigration.


It’s called the American Dream

Not the American scheme.

Take off the blindfolds already

And see what I see.


Your children are being enslaved,

Their immortal spirits depraved

One foot in the coffin

Tombstone engraved


They're devoting their lives

In pursuit of a paycheck

Selling out their dreams

To be collared around the neck


They march to the gallows

In a single file lines

Waiting to be blessed

By Wallstreet divines


But little do they know

It's all a big scheme

To rob them of their freedom

And the American dream.

      It's hard to keep the flow in these poems. I use music to take me where I want to be.

      Your sense of rhythm is awesome. The flow makes it a even more enjoyable read. Need I even mention how powerful the content is? Great job Philly Dreamer. Glad I followed you.

      Very creative, with a great message. Loved it! I hope others wake up before it's too late. Voted up and then some. :)
