individuality.
the only way to survive is
conformity;
no one gains recognition through
challenging rules!
although resisted, you are encouraged by
obedience.
it's just awful to oblige solely by
constant pressure to be new, but
please break out of thinking it's
prohibiting to be you.
the system is simply
choosing what's best for the majority.
it's ineffective when a single force is
thinking for himself.
it's time one starts
following a mold...

now read backwards

I'd like to give credit to a poet with the initials/name (I'm not sure) ron. ron's poem named Perfect Inadequacy (about embracing flaws) inspired me to create a poem with the same structure, but focusing on embracing one's uniqueness.

ron, if you see this, thank you so much for your poetic prowess!!

Hello, Ron!
We're here!
We've come to join you!

We've held your lines
Upheld your dream for All—
Now our hope, our dream—
The Goal of Total Freedom!

And in your quest beyond the sky
Beyond the stars that trim the night
We've come—All for All

To join you
To help you
To thank you for the Bridge to Total Freedom!

Love,
Thank you!

When L. Ron Hubbard passed away I wrote this poem to say hello instead of goodbye. Hello to the spirit who is Ron.

The Bridge to Total Freedom is the legacy Ron left us in Scientology.

Just because Ron's body is no longer around doesn't mean that I don't talk to him. I do. We're still friends.

From beneath the bottom of the bottomless abyss, below even that, to the firm cliff's edge above where light shines without shadow, so the Basic Books soar above the darkness, the lostness and the nightmares of yore.

From beneath the bottom of the bottomless abyss, below even that, to the firm cliff's edge above where light shines without shadow.  Further, to the waving flags at the peaks of the highest mountain tops and the voices of those who have climbed cheering and calling from above, so rise the Lectures with their Basic Books.

From beneath the bottom of the bottomless abyss, below even that, to the firm cliff's edge above where light shines without shadow.  Further, to the waving flags at the peaks of Highest Mountain and the voices of those who have climbed cheering and calling from above. Still further and unbelievably beyond, where infinity begins to stretch into constellations of your own creation, where hyperbole will remain forever an understatement, so ascends The Golden Age of Knowledge—The words, the voice and the visions of Ron.
Another in my Scientology related series. An expression of my experiences as a Scientologist and of spirituality and understandings gained through study.

Not all poems survive. I've lost a few and let others go. My current collection of poems is available on Kindle and in paperback. It is called "3201 e's" (that is approximately how many e's are in the manuscript which is a very unpoetic title but a reflection on the creation of poetry by common means.)

Stop letting corporate news tell lies to your children
Unless you want to continue to be blind to the truth
That it isn’t a Republican or a Democrat
It’s both of them
Who are both feeding lies to your children
Maybe a few are good here and there
But that’s such an off chance
And they’ll shut them up before they can spit anything real out
Ron Paul tried his best
But freedom isn’t what they want for you
Unless freedom from choice counts
As we allow more intense regulation
Coming from this corrupt business
Oh…

I wasn’t talking about a company
I was talking about your government
The ones who thieve from you all the time
With a thing called ‘taxation’
And have infinite funds to use as they please
Especially if they want to fund another war
Where they send the people who fund that war
Out to fight that war
How beautiful is that?

But continue to vote for the man using the word ‘hope’ or ‘change’
Like Obama did
But what if I told you he is just George W
And instead has the symbol of donkey
Instead of an elephant?

And no I won’t allow this structure to take me over
Just look at this poem
It has no order or rules
Because I don’t let the government tell me what the **** to do
Keep on listening to them as they yell at the big business
But the funny thing is
They are working with that big business every single day
Most of these so-called politicians will continue
To not give a **** about me or you
So maybe you should take a stand
And vote for self-governance
Or at the very least
Look into new ideas
Because Democrats and Republicans are a limiting force
And will never strive for radical change
They’ll continue to melt the ***
As I sit and strive for change
With massive militant poetry

Think for yourself they'll tell you
But you'll never agree
Because you want no liberty
Even though it is all or nothing,
A willingness to die by those values
But they'll tell you that you're incompetent
Or special while they steal another set of data
Quietly from the cradle
And you'll think that's fine and okay
As you watch another show and simply lay.

They want you to be politically minimal and vote the same
Because it is cause for a simple aim,
To vote for everything to be as it once was,
The counter will buzz as the state lives on,
The surface level is easy and quick and enjoyable,
Just 140 characters of freedom are enough,
Everything else is far too hard
Because propaganda is still easy even in democracy
Despite the fact that it's all ******* hypocrisy,
We'll never be free until you're willing to see
That in the empire of lies truth is treason.
