Freethinking Through The Flames - Poem by Ariel Kraitzick

Tendrils of deep black leap from the underneath
Twisting their way through the crisp night's air.
And with them they bring a pungent odour
A stench of ambiguity
Clouding the mind like a drug
Bony talons of smoke grasp around necks of truths
Strangling all who oppose
But at the same time conflicted
Confused by the illogical, the irrational
By thoughts of pure dementia

Then come the flames
Curling, flickering, dancing
As if in tune to death's melody
Their edges reach high
Showing their claim over a once innocent mind
Burning through cast iron shackles
Of silence and of cowardice
A once abstinence of revelations unveiled
While orange wisps of virgin flame illuminate
My fate
One of scepticism and fiery opinion
A fate bound by FLAME

    Another really fantastic poem, Ariel! Outstanding portrayal of the ambiguity of lies and illusions and how their owners try to strangle any who oppose them. Free thinkers are despised by liars and cheats because they want to confuse the real issues at hand. Their reasoning is illogical and irrational when you actually think and ponder it. My philosophy is question everything and everyone, if you don't agree just tell the truth, it will always win out in the end. And remember that political correctness is morally and ethically wrong in our society, all it is doing is helping to rear the head of hypocrisy and discrimination. Just love your poetry, please keep writing. Have added you to my poet list if that's alright with you. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Thanks so much. As a fourteen year old in a small minded world it is nice to know there are others like me

    Thanks so much. As a fourteen year old in quite a small minded world it is quite comforting to know that there are others like me with similar philosophies
