Mindless This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Mindless
walking
fools.
Always having to enlighten the world with their “wisdom”
Until they dictate everything

Robots
Who can’t think for themselves.
Always seeking the opinion of those greater than them in the pyramid of society.
Doing what they say is right.

Trying
To break us down
to our bare bones.
Craving that rush of power,
To see us sweat.

Wanting
the satisfaction of our pain
and knowing that they caused it.
Demolishing the walls of our spirit,
and letting us collapse.

Yelling,
Persistently trying to lodge their views into our minds.
When we deny them
they start to shove words down our throats,
wishing for us to drown in their ocean of supremacy

Must we walk in fear
Thinking that we will be silenced?
That we will become nothing?

All because of these
mindless
walking
fools.
