I Will Not Be Controlled

I Will Not Be Controlled

by James Farganne

From somewhere in the Power Grid,
I shout a statement bold
As it is terse and lucid:
I will not be controlled.

I will not say I’ve seen the light.
The light was always there.
I will not say I’ve won a fight
With forces thin as air,

For I was always free. Only
Illusions had me sold.
Awake intention is the key:
I will not be controlled.

Not by the clock, nor by the cent,
Nor by the data stream,
That oceanic current
Drowning us in one vast dream

Of time-bound, earthly “value”
Locked in data bits, in gold.
The only raft that’s tried and true?
“I will not be controlled.”

Not by the crafted tastes and lusts,
The fashions of today;
Not by foundations, think tanks, trusts,
Not by the CIA,

Not by phantasmagoric sleights
Of hidden, occult hand,
Not by tricks to “reclaim my rights”–
I do not “understand”

Such busy schemes. I won’t conform
To any legal mind.
Even the “freeman” is a norm.
I will not be defined.

I will fill no conceptual mold.
I will not be controlled.

Not by a market pixel blip.
Not by induced brainwaves.
Not by a meter or a chip.
Only intention saves.

They think “mind has no firewall”?
In this they are deceived.
The one who stands in spirit tall
Through prayer is soon relieved.

I’ll keep my spirit wild,
Only tamed by What Made Me.
I won’t be charmed or styled
By the lisping Enemy,

Whose dark, inverted “freedom”
Chains the mind, shackles the soul.
Here in my Father’s kingdom,
It has no such control.

I will not be controlled by it
Or any other thing.
So though a slave by crooked writ,
In Truth, I am a king,

Bound only by eternal Law.
The codes be burnt in hell
Where their oath-bound purveyors
Shall one day surely dwell.

The Grid grows ever stronger.
But despite its strangling hold,
I am a slave no longer,
For I will not be controlled.
