Haiku........Slavery

delusions of grandeur
what else, but
slavery to oneself?


" white man's burden ",
a historical ruse,
...made slaves of men!


oh! addictions, evil
born of self-weaknesses
Be cast away, slavery!


ying and yang,
completeness, personified
mutual slavery!

  4. These are really good ... and you are right they "zing," except that I am not sure of wether or not I agree with the final Haiku. I will have to mull this over.

    I liked your three poems very much. Certainly we create our own slavery at times. Well done! hugs, pat

  10. dear old raven....thanks you so much! i believe that even a mutual dependence is a kind of a bondage, one which is a fact of life, complete when together, yet in isolation, it is incomplete or an abnormality.
