‘Mark my words as the wars you started began with similar words.
An uprising of sanity will occur for our country’s sake.
Indoctrinated to believe that our feigned freedom  was  our choice.
No more fear of prosecution for our rights, that we had to leave.
 

They are driven senseless by rapacity and self interest.
Your contempt for named people that you swore to protect with justice,
Has rendered us speechless for falsity you try to clarify.
Go consider our lies and take them as truth to fuel your beliefs.
 

Our faith is nothing more than  counterfeit to throw off clouded eyes.
Our tales of ordinary feats celebrated in silence.
Our history was written by him with our generations blood.
People are stealing hope to light their homes to show that they still live.
‘-Shaza

 

I wrote this poem recently focusing on the syllable count.The first four lines of each stanza have 16 syllables each.
