"Open-mindedness" Poem from A Lover in the Land of Hell Poetry Book

More open-mindedness is what we all need

We've been programmed to believe what we believe

Go to school, graduate, get a job and achieve

But in essence we are all being deceived

It's the American way, that's what they say

Scrimp and save until your next payday

Go to church, in Jesus name pray

but Jesus ain't gonna change nothing - no way

It's up to you – only you can break out of this trance

Life is a gamble but there's always that chance

When you start to seek truth your life will advance

The fortunate ones will wake up from this dance

It is definitely a challenge to awaken in life

when your mind is preoccupied everyday nine to five

but for most this is the only way to survive

I'm not saying it's wrong but there's more paths to try

It's a conditioned existence, it all starts at birth

Parents and teachers will dictate your worth

Insist you do well, compete, come in first

In reality we're all being prepped for the worst

There's never much time to sit down and think

about the reality we truly live in

How we're brained washed in a control system

Until we wake up we'll never question

Of course this may sound like a paranoid rant

and you may not believe that your mind's in a trance

but in order for all of this to really make sense

it's going to take a little open-mindedness
