The Thought Of I - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

I'm blessed within my given means, our society's honors having evil deems, vision to see man malice in schemes.

A victim in panic run from sight of killer, targeted I by authority hunter, their said right as a destroyer for me.

I cut from Order persistent down of said be, a path in resistant paid, alone I walk no aid its cage rigid course.

In spirit I to cross vast void for answers, a toss ransom from those in skies, my fist tapping at boss mansions.

Vermin flee death into holes running in gasps, Order my exterminators as wasps, I in dark cave nested as an asp.

Target is end hell wanting to escape pit, defying hell's river hot heat hits, ending lies as I bit going from forth.

Out of fire understanding by my endurance to know, I having seen to had flow, full circle had by me: it to show.

Other than stated I about things, by tasks in honesty to be slated, views related as to be -me no more than I.
