What system do you see through?

Innocent to the earth

Blemished before the judge

Blameless since birth

Isolated to the grudge

 

Two value systems

Perceive and Review

Man's disease and symptoms

Whether true or askew

 

One with pats on the back

And encouraging letters

Saying there is no slack

And therefore no fetters

 

The other system to condemn

Sees past the facade

For the other system has judgment to lend

Only from God

 

What is man?

Isolated from system

On the path of the damned

Hopeless in prison

 

What is man?

Free and so good

As amoral as time

And as timeless as wood

 

Who decides what system wins?

Who decides emancipation or death?

Naturally the creation shall lose its’ grin

When the creating system owns man’s breath

Our world
