Oppression

by Beautiful Chaos   Feb 25, 2013


I can drink the same water
But not from the same place
Because you fear me
What you have made me

You cringe at the thought of your cruelties
And the penance they could bring you
That you could never bear to carry
Because your fear makes you weak

You are scared of what you don't control
What is different from you
And your impulse is to put it down
Oppress it

As you and your hatred can not be oppressed
Neither can our spirit
You shall reap what you sow
And we shall live in a country of ignorance

    The first stanza just breaks my heart. I seriously can't believe people had to drink from different fountains. It's just not something I can begin to understand, it seems so ridiculous. You hit it spot on when you said you fear what you can't control, that's all it is. Different doesn't mean bad, and I'm guilty of that sometimes. Definitely a piece to make you think!
