I Was Told

March 21, 2019

FREE WRITING

7
I was told
that we are all equal.
Just like the child with her imaginary toys
and the businessman with his diamond smile and golden wallet
and the woman with the purple bruises splattered on her like paint.
They're obviously all equal.

I was told
that we are all free.
Just like the children wasting away in dank cells made of "care"
and the men trading in their skirts for trousers because they should "act like real men"
and the girl with her hair covered but her faith on display, just asking to be tormented by the creatures around her.
They're obviously all free.

I was told 
that we are all happy.
Just like child living in a world of lies because it beats living with the truth
and the father drinking his problems away in a rage of black and blue 
and the mother waiting for her son day in and day out - the son who she knows will never return.
They're obviously all happy.

I was told
that we all receive the truth.
Just like how we're all equal
and we're all free
and we're all happy.
That's obviously all true.
I'm actually sort of proud of this. Somewhat fuelled by recent events.
what are your thoughts?
Any comments or ideas are appreciated!! : )

    Hey, I'm trying to write your prize reviews for my contest, but the links to the pieces you requested won't work. If you could give me the titles of the pieces, I'd really appreciate that :DD Thanks

    Hi! :) you expressed interest in a concept I’d posted under the title “STORY IDE, ANY THOUGHTS”, which I’ve just written the first chapter of. If you don’t have interest, feel free to ignore this. The link is below :)
