I know not freedom

I know not freedom!
My songs die to the
disorientation in
man's fair wisdom,
My song die to the
imbecilic burgeoning
of fair minds!

In cloistered
instants I nudged my
dry lips
to call to scour the
pain in my bones,
I prayed midnight
naked and thought I
could write back to
cut the Gordian
knot,
But still, freedom I
know not!

With relic poems I
purified my eyes to
sight an ancient
piece of me,
I stretched my soul
for the hand of a
little boy I once
been, But there is
none of me where I
once left myself!
My word ousted by
stilted and truth
-tilted theories!

I sing soullessly my
withered song with
bitter taste,
A song that beats
back the pain buried
beneath my opaque
scars,
My hope dries up
like the skin of
tribal drums!

I know not freedom
