The Slave

by | Apr 12, 2021 | Poetry

The slave cannot escape his oppressor’s shadow.
The slave is burdened by his own worried mind.
The slave cannot see further than the eyes of others.
The slave is a slave to time.
The slave wishes to be an outsider while being stuck on the inside.
The slave will never see life on this journey,
The slave constantly yearns to die.
The slave finds money as the only way to happiness,
The slave does not answer to the name slave,
This is because the slave thinks that he or she is free.
The slave cannot escape this cycle,
Because slavery is 360 degrees.
We are all slaves to something– and only Jesus can set us free.
The slave.
