Perfect Soldier
Poem by Raea Adams

When I look in the mirror
I see a fraction of a human
Wondering if my sanity is still here
Wondering if others can hear
These screams  that echo in my mind.

A perfect soldier for our overseer
Truthfully quite inhuman
Not giving a fuck who overhears
Driving towards the cliff should I steer?
Looking at this contract where Death signed.

What’s love in this forsaken land
There’s no dillinger escape plan
Write off my soul to the sand.
I can fight for freedom
Give my life to a cause that’d benefit me,
I can only foresee
A constant fight until a forever sleep.
