Poem about how People and Perceptions Age

Rebel Without a Cause

*In case you’ve returned after first viewing the poem yesterday, when it was published, and think you remember a different poem, the title has been changed from World Turned Upside Down Over Time, and the folding middle line from political systems shapeshift, humanity remains insideout.
Marc Latham’s new Folding Mirror poem needs no introduction. Should the middle-aged be true to what they were or are? Are they what they were? Were they what they are?
Living in the Middle-Ages
remember my rebellion
things I believed
were destroying my soul
that I wanted to escape
the age old enemy within
individual in society
always being true
to what you are
trying to die
before something kills you
political systems spin around, humanity remains upside down
adapting to slowing down
landing at sea
who am I now
ideas used up
festivals need cleaners
keeping it real each day
survival in the wild means
other life making way
my inner thoughts
combined with conservation
