"Veni Vedi Vici"

The freedom of the mind
One of the greatest
Just like the galaxy
Out in every direction
Ever growing still
You don't need to go straight
Or back
Or up
Or down
And more
So much more
Again like another
Like life
So many allusions and illusions
So many barriers and bars
Is this a wall?
Or is it a gate?
A window or a door
To watch or enter
A glass to admire the beauty
To shatter down and pass through
Questions and confusions
False meanings
Is it really valor
To put yourself last
Is it really strength
To hold all else on your shoulders
Is it really wise
To make everyone else in the world happy

You see the world and our minds is more like this poem
This poetry style "Free Verse"
Where can it go
I can turn this in any which what direction
Just like emotions
One moment you are so happy
Then the next news comes
And clouds spill ebony blackness on your bliss

And then more
Because nothing is fair
Nothing is right
Everything that is supposedly "Right" or "good"
Can be so easily snatched away
Yet things life tyranny evil darkness fear and sadness
Are generally rooted in
And are the hardest to banish
But the easiest to control...
The easiest to control
In a world of free verse
How can this make a right
Or a wrong to control, that wrong
To establish a right?
Only in free verse.
