If we all knew we were in control,
would we still live in chains?
Would we still live as victims, products of our circumstances,
forever caged in the enigmas of our responsibility?
If we all knew we were powerful
would we we still live as slaves,
our chains being deflection and ignorance?

Liberty is a concept unknown to society,
because we fear our power,
we restrain our control,
we hate our freedom,
primality is liberty,
and through this thought,
we are trapped in the cell of our mentality.

Liberty's mother was primality,
her father was formality,
her sister was influence,
but she was different.
Instead of being hated or beloved,
she was controversial,
imprisoned, lost.
All those that knew her soon forgot her,
the ones that remembered her were ostracised, outcasted,
much like liberty herself.

Within all of us we have the power,
to let power go,
to our heads or to our souls,
to give it away or to keep it,
but power is liberty's son,
and thus gets lost to all but few
yet power's father was confidence,
strongly beloved by all,
lusted after, sought after.
Through confidence, power is accepted
through liberty, power is restricted.

Inside of liberty is wisdom,
exposed to decision,
experienced to ambition,
and this may fall into the hands of  an individual who is driven,
but not without liberty,
as liberty is chained to wisdom,
and humanity is the master,
as they are to power, and influence,
and so if influence is manipulated
power is too,
misused and defiled,
for the benefit of you.

And so I pose the question,
do you let them go,
or do you keep them chained,
to be free requires control,
but to be a slave requires none.

+rep Lot of thought in your poem, Corvo. Individual responsibility vs group responsibility? I do very much like this line:

"...to be free requires control,
but to be a slave requires none.

Short version 'liberty is not free nor can it be left untended or unguarded'. (has nothing to do with politics and I won't go there)
