My life has been molded
by the world of 15 minute increment agendas
and 150 character updates by the second.

My body has been pacified
by the world of liquid sugar satiation
and instant edible gratification.

My mind has been conditioned
by the world that favors extroverted personalities
and introverted abdomens and collarbones.

I live, move and breathe
in the world that is scared of freethinkers
and will not succeed in boxing me in.

In my world, I define my own worth.
This mesmerizing feeling always has its start in your mind,
Then it goes to your eyes and opens them wide.

Next, through your spine to the heart where your will lies,
That is the power to conquer the skies.

When it is done it goes to the tips of your toes and fingers,
This is the way to change the world, a way of a freethinker.
From now on you are the fire bringer!

Bob B May 2018
Wise adults know the value
Of leaving foolish thoughts unexpressed.
Somehow that message has been lost
On rap singer Kanye West.

When mentioning the many years
Of suffering when the enslaved had to toil
And live in fear of whippings and lynchings
And **** here on American soil,

West has now made slavery
A topic to which he's given voice:
That it lasted for so many years
Means that it must have been a choice!

West claims that he's a freethinker.
Critics, of course, will disagree.
Anyone who knows the past
Would substitute "non" for "free."

If that's his desire for recognition,
He's found an odd way to gratify it.
What a way to promote an album!
Who the hell would want to buy it?

The singer, desperate for attention,
Is just like somebody else we know.
Money, fame, and power can turn you
Into a real so-and-so.

Who am I?

Who am I?
No this is not something short of existential, rather something much more personal.
Human I am.
Romantic at heart.
But. Who am I?
I am definitely am not one.
I cannot be one to you. That thought is woefully ridiculous.
Who am I to you?
To me, I like to imagine a ring on your finger.
Of course this comes from an utterly ******* romantic freethinker.
To you.
My hand is extended for friendship.
Always.
But some days.
I daydream, I daydream of so much more.
Where I am among your closest friends.
Where I can call you nothing short of a best friend.
To you.
Who am I?
Writing prompts burst asunder
deafening soundcloud roared
with apocalyptic thunder
'course only audible to yours truly,
I did dumbfoundedly wonder...

At o'clock tick tocking wee hours brisk
December seventeenth
two thousand nineteen
simultaneous blinding fiery kindling

within winkin blinkin and nod,
I feared full light of day brainstorm
snatched away courtesy invisible whisk

broom all those potential
ideas sprung while
Messiah by George Frideric
Handel's never out of style

crannies (think Ohiopyle),
whereby Youghiogheny River

of electricity per hour, to alleviate

and central Pennsylvania.

Analogous catching

which might not appeal)
though yours truly

you could easily fall

overboard as ye kneel,
which subsequently offers
live human meal

to escape no matter
how loud you squeal,

Aforementioned depiction, whereby current

he cavalierly lent

whereby I experience torment
precipitating quasi riptides undercurrent
bigotry, demagoguery, "fakery,"...
misogyny, vanity vetted vice
whereby woebegone grievances
Pandora's box loosed
helter skelter they went.

Anyway... synonymous maintaining

of one or more freethinker.
