Oppressive

Free verse poetry

My emotion’s become raw
When I see the oppression of others,
Enforced by those who have no desire
To find themselves In crippling situation’s
They put others through to acquire what is not theirs.

To overpower and violate those
They deem below themselves
Through physical or mental torment
To get their own spoilt way, revealing
The true weakness of one Who convinces themself
Of deserved acquired power, abusing this state
For the benefit of only themself.

The oppressed can only hope this will become their downfall,
As belligerent behaviour becomes their Achilles heel
Seeing to it their fall is a mighty, painful demise.

Thank you Lucy (the eggcademic) for this emotional prompt “Raw”

Thank you for Lucy (the eggcademic) for giving my words a platform here at
The Brain is a Noodle. Thank you all for reading and your precious time.
Always. J.
