When I am on my computer, I feel free
Free from the abuse of the world and others
For the computer does not lie to me
And it lets me have my druthers
I do not have to worry about betrayal
Or any other little insidious and deceitful games
I can go where I want on the computer’s portals
No blames, no shames
Riding the waves of the internet
Speaking to my closer far away friends in communities of virtual
Rather than to the ones who are closer, but far away I fret
It does not matter if they are sitting next to me in factual and actual
If they are of a certain political mind set, for me that is all wet
Then for I all I care they might as well be in Tibet
My escape comes from a higher matter
Where brains, lives and souls are not scattered and shattered
…in political hate
But allowed to grow and become wise from higher learning, the arts and political debate
My computer may be a mundane object of this world
But my computer is my friend unfurled
For my computer gives me the freedoms and the liberties I daresay
That others who call themselves my brothers and sisters deny me everyday
My computer lets me live abroad
My so called brothers and sisters want me to live ABROAD too
But in a nasty, hurtful sense, to limit me to a bawd
Nothing sent or felt in the spirit and thought of learning, living, loving and growing…
Through and through
But knowing…
That it is something bent on decay, death, hurt, hate cages, prisons, brick walls, and invisible but intensely real hard iron bars
Where you are made to become nothing but a little bug, living in a jar
Visible, susceptible, and vulnerble to all sorts of invasions
Where the lid has been screwed on so tight yet crookedly
That you can no longer breath, trying to protect yourself from the abrasions
That come to the mind, heart, body and soul from the cruelty of your keepers, agedly
You unwillingly advance, fearing and quite knowing that the outcome will be blue
You will end up being nothing but horse glue, bloody, bleary, weary, and blind from time
Undefined…in the prison of your chaotic world…where they tell you
…to follow the rules, while they don’t…smiling evil smiles and playing with your family jewels

Something bent on disrespect and neglect
We don’t see, we don’t hear, we only make you live in fear
Something so loathsome, so hard to believe, and so very dark blue that it brings tears as it shifts your gears
Something so undefined and surreal, yet so very powerful and real, it creates lives that are wrecked
The power of cages and hate
There is no debate, only the irate
Some evil lurking animal that you must never-endingly sate

I find escape through my computer, it lets me go into myself
To look and see what is lurking there in the cupboard on the shelf
The choice lies with you to some very small extent
No matter what they have broken and bent
To find a safe place that I can interact with my interests and my pleasures
A place where there is lovely art to look at, share and appreciate in good measure
And a place with beautiful songs to hear with my heart, soul and emotions, these melodies are such treasures
And in the finding of myself, I find others who have the same interests as well
And possibly the same need to escape the reality of their existence for a while too
My computer is not just a mundane earthly object to me, but something that provides a stairwell
For it opens doorways into worlds and possibilities that would otherwise be shut for for me in damned rivulets of extremely deep dark blue
For who I am or what I believe, my computer does not persecute me
My computer allows me to be me, My computer sets me free
