Punishment - Poetry - Teal Swan Jump to content


About this poem:

A poem in which Teal is speaking about our detrimental, societal idea of justice.

You strive for power,
By stealing power from the powerless.

Until you are left with nothing
Traveling a dark and reckless path to a place that feels like protection from all the things you do not want.

But it only leads to pain.
You have forgotten this.

Your desperate quest to make this life controllable, when it is not yours to control is futile, 
Just like it always was, as rules which are made, are just as quickly broken.

It defies the basic rule of universal freedom.
You have forgotten this.

You have lost the power of knowing that anything you push against, 
You just get all the more of.

You can not fight away pain with pain.

May you come to remember this.
