Bound | A Poem by Cole Severns

Shackles of the status quo’s bondage to the metric ton of neatly
alphabetized and color-coded subgenres. Serving to feed the
motivations of inspirational status seekers. Driven by the
self-serving hidden agendas of monetary and emotional greed. Standing on the sidelines and perpetuating a plagiarized self-expression. Pretentious manipulation driven by shallow intentions. Victims and perpetrators equally guilty for allowing the lingering emptiness of insecure projections to persist. Counterfeit ramblings of a homogenized identity attempting to diminish the authentic,
unapologetic brilliance of the white-hot laser that incinerates any
and all deception and exposes the unspoken flaw.

    I am new to the poetry of Cole Severns but must admit that I find it stylistically similar to that of a frequent contributor to Social Justice Poetry, differing primarily in length of line. But the subject matter and cadence are remarkably similar. I hope both continue to write for a very long time.
