in a hamster wheel …

not sure, what to make of it
devil incognito, or angel of death
eerie feelings, and emptiness
turn back time, to vain & madness

mystical obsession, on a crystal ball
no direction, for the next day action
moral decay, and toxic spirit
frozen memory, to its brutal past

bad investment, and regional tension
hostile takeover, greed and corruption
induced to slavery, and subjugation
civil unrest, for authentic representation

dictators, on a survival mode
confined, in a hamster wheel
delusional self, pretending to be
stripped naked for all to see

we need our mosses, to partition the sea
to rescue the youth from tragedy
we need our mandela, to set us free
emancipate,  from collective misery
