The World Mistrusts Your Freedom - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

to choose between
sorrow and joy
one chooses joy

you think you can choose
you choose

the world however
gives you sorrows
and the choice has become too
there is only sorrow and sorrow
and no other

eventually to live
one must accept what is given
you say i want to choose
now you must give me the choices
for i will choose
what pleases me

but the world knows you better
which you do not actually know
you have chosen the joys
that have destroyed you and since
the world has not
trusted you

for with your freedom
you will
on the claim of not knowing

even yourself
your family
your kin.
