RULED BY EMOTIONS

I will not be 
ruled by my 
emotions,
Thus I shan’t 
love,
I can’t hate,
I won’t live,
I shall 
obliterate,
Like spoken 
word with no 
debate,
You and I are 
no duplicate,
My body shall 
be a suitcase,
Organs packed 
like folded 
clothes,
Just like an 
open shoe you 
see the toes,
Thus no friends 
and many are 
foes,
No happiness 
only woes,
Because that’s 
the way the 
robot goes,
Neither smile 
nor tear must 
flow,
Not a fright 
when appears a 
crow,
At full power 
alone do my 
eyes glow,
To get no love 
and give none 
back,
To obey, serve,
To torture my 
humanity,
And smother my 
substance,
For everyone 
else? For 
nothing?
