Mental Prison By Jasen Sousa

Mental Prison

Do you have the key to see past bars
and see the stars?

Physical freedom,
thoughts behind steel.
We live in a society
which encourages us not to feel.
Dressed in our prison suits and boots,
shopping for the biggest sale.
Minds stuck in a black hole, life without parole,
adopting a way of life that is not real.
We conform to values and norms,
rules someone else made.
Stop being fools!
Breakout! Be brave!
True freedom comes with focus
inside of our thoughts.
Crooked cops,
pick their corrupt locks.
Let your mind be as free as the wind,
let it land where it desires.
This is a life sentence
that never expires.

Follow ways of others,
repeat the same mistakes.
Freedom of thought
when the mind awakes.
Question what you see,
question who you are and who you will be.
Self confession is the key.
Wisdom has no walls,
no restraints.
Our souls are saints
when our minds paint
images and landscapes
no one else can create.
Freedom of thought,
you'll know when you made it.
They feed us poison,
yet we still starve.
We search for pleasure to feel better,
yet we still feel scared.
We will remain slaves of society
until we break free from shackles and chains.
We will remain locked up
until we unlock the power which resides in our brains.

Do you have the key to see past bars
and see the stars?
