Mind Control Anthem

Standard

Consuming thoughts

Consuming minds

That’s what I’ve learnt living in a society like mine

Religion, sex, money and drugs

These are the anthem of our times

Man kills man for a piece of land

Wages war for what’s never his

To search for the truth is long over due

For all that matters is power that consumes

Black, brown or white you may be

You’re still a slave of your thoughts you see

The world defines you for what you have

The less of heart and less of conscious intact

Consuming thoughts

It’s a mind control

Fame, money and power replaced human soul

The more you strive for it the more  emptier you grow

Humanity lost its honor in course

What you’ve become is a slave you see

You appear free but you’re not free

Caught in the clutches of time and present

The real purpose of life lay forgotten

Wake up while you still have time you see

For it might be late when you realize it’s all just a dream

The reality is not what you perceive

As it’s hidden in the soul you’ve lost you see

Truth be told I’m a slave too

But I’ve let myself free from this thought control

About Bano

I’m trying to find a better introduction but since, I can’t? Hi! I’m Sheher Bano Zafar and I write. I write not because there lies aspiration to be a writer someday but because, it keeps me sane. I love the color silver, black and grey. I also realize that they fall under the same color tone. Whatever, I write is a result of my 3 a.m blues or insomniac depressive tendencies. I can’t write during the day. I’m addicted to caffeine and well, anything and everything (if I like it). Also, I suck at conversations. I bite my nails. Most of the time I’m clueless about the world around me. I love politics and youth activism. People tell me that art and politics don’t belong in the same mind, but I’m passionate about both. One day I might be drawing on a canvas or writing a story and the very next day I will be heading off to attend a summit on the role of youth at the United Nations. I have multiple people trapped in the same body. Each side does try to express itself, in minimal ways if not fully. I’m currently going through a rough patch in life. I guess, I’m adjusting to the world through multiple perceptions. I absolutely love talking to myself because an expert opinion is always required. Most of the time, I just play scenarios in my mind that would never happen. I’m very contradictory in my thought process and actions but it is okay, people get to be what they want to be as long as no other soul is hurt. Peace out!
