Silent War

Limits they call them.
Reality they say.
Just more propaganda to control the stem cells of society

To turn us into mindless zombies,
Riding the way of conformity
That crashes against the shores of our laziness.
Drowning the fighters

And the dreamers

And the freethinkers

The drone of their hunger rings in our ears.
The taste of our blood drips from their mouths.

With each passing day we lose a member.
With each passing month we lose a battle.
With each passing year we get closer and closer to losing the war.

This is really quite good! I liked the way you put it. Especially liked the image of the shore... 

 

I wonder, what would you say if someone said that there are times in life where you HAVE to conform?

Well I live in the US so i wouldn't know about that in preticular, but I think its one think to dress for the occation or event and simply just change who you are to fit in or because someone tells you to. To me there would never a reason why you can't be who you are or what you want to be. Eventhough a lot of us are made to feel like we have to be a certain way and a certain person. And what/ who that person is is always changing. That is the internal war we all at some piont fight.
