Down the Rabbit Hole

I don’t want to lie and keep up this
Saying everyone is beautiful and
We are all just great
Because in reality we’re not.
You say you want passion
I don’t think you rationed
How this could turn out
But I’ll take a shot
And you can all deal with what I’ve got.

I want to live in a world where I’m
Free to be me
And don’t have to hide or
To be someone I’m not or
Keep my mouth shut,
Because I’ll be
Thrown to the Jabberwocky for
Making the mistake of thinking I can be me, and
I’m free to say that I want to live in
A world where I don’t have to hear about a god
I don’t believe in, in every class by people
Who say I’ll be punished by the queen of hearts with no heart for
Having no faith
And to that I say:
When you prove he exists
It will be my dying wish to scream
“Off with your heads!” for turning
This world to shit.

Why can’t we just live in a time where
Humans aren’t plagues
Sucking the life out of every living thing
On the face of the Earth, and
Religion doesn’t exist because
All you do is persist
In trying to get me to believe.
Why won’t you just leave
Me alone
And drink a potion of death?
I can guarantee I won’t miss you and
Your shit.

I need a world where it’s ok to look for a
Rabbit running late or
A cat with no face,
Only a large row of teeth gleaming beneath
A branch above a tea party hosted by a
Mad hatter.

I want to believe it’s safe to conceive
In sun glinting off fairies’ wings
While they dance through the meadow where
Unicorns sleep and
The borogroves may be mimsy as can be
Without worry of being discovered by
Bandersnatches who will deplete them.

No one will accept
The concept of
A world made by science
Filled by the supernatural and unnatural,
But unlike you I’m not trying to make
People buy it,
Just to take a step back, relax, and
Ditch the magnifying glass.
Not everything can be explained and
It’s not all what it seems to be.

This world is killing me.
It won’t let me be free
To be me and do and say what I please
Because I don’t fit in the mold.
I don’t think my sanity will hold
For much longer
So I’ll send you a postcard from
Down the rabbit hole.



This is an awesome poem! I love how you tied Alice In Wonderland into the overall message. Keep up the great work!
