Through my Eyes

All the same crowds walking all around
The deafening roar of feet
All the same folk or troops of friends
One more mask to meet

All the same tops and outfits to match
Everyone dressed the same
All the same fears about what’s in and what’s out
Merely one more big game

All the same words echoing from all the same mouths
Nothing new ever said
And when the one fearless one stands up and speaks out
She is silenced, may as well be dead

All the same minds working eternally on perfection
Can we never just be content
All the same attitudes as adamant as diamond
Always the same rough intent

All the same robots on auto-drive all day
Coming to play at night
All the same risks taken in such a careless view
The androids dangerous blight

All the same aggravations tearing holes in my mind
Attacked for just being me
Always the same crowd drowning me out, voice and opinions alike
Will I never be free…

Through my Eyes

Artist's Description

Oh, Goddess. ANOTHER English Project. Amazingly these English projects all seem to be some of my best stuff and I know I have another four poems stuffed away somewhere that i did for English that I need to add on here.

I was originally going to do a small story but I just couldn’t get it to work at all so I just decided on this instead because it was both faster and slightly easier. Although poems are not my strong point, they are a good way of getting across a point as they can always be interrupted in so many different ways even when there is really only one intended meaning within them. There is also a rather large hidden word play within the poem that I didn’t even pick up on myself until I re-read it. It that is obvious to some and hidden under veils to others but to me that re-enforces the meaning within…
