Behind the coolest bars – K.B

Useful testimony for my work. Pay attention to the story of this guy. Did my best to draw attention on this problem of freedom in certain families living in the West and who kept a tradition of ignorance and castration of their children’s dreams, wether they be immigrants or not.        K.B.

 

Behind the coolest bars

 

 
Room empty,
Ashtray, full.

Since 22 years old,
Fighting the system.

Parents mistreating
Me.

Sent to various
Hospitals
Simply
Coz I left
Uni
And my job
Without
Notice
On a span
Of a year.

Room empty,
Ashtray full.

Consumed
And lucid.

I saw hell
In those
Hospitals
Despite
Publishing.

Free voice
Or healthcare
Parasite ?

I saw hell.

Got out.

Kept on
Writing.

Still alive,
Behind the
Coolest bars.

My body
Has been
Numb
For years
Because
Of the drugs
They gave me.

From times
To times,
A threat
Fills the air :

« I’m calling
The police »

Cries the hysterical
Mother.

The danger
Is real.

Hanging
On a thread.

Walk, or die.

My tenderness
Goes here.

Since 22 years old,
Living under a threat.

Not enough money
To rent a place of my
Own.

They wanted to
Put me in
Specialised
Centers.

What have I done ?

I dedicated
Every second
To rise and
Be myself.

Daily insults,
Reproach,
Never
Good enough.

Look at me,
Do I seem
To be a criminal?

Just a hypersensitive
Poet.

Charges?

Left studies.
Left his job.

Found them too
Dumb,
I was becoming
Numb.

Every now and then,
A threat hangs in the air :

« Call the police !  »

The sirens are not
Wailing yet,

But my heart cries
And wails
Behind the coolest bars.

The unspoken
Dilemna it is,

With an absent
God

Who started
Everything
Then disappeared.

Going on the streets
Is not a solution.

Relativity : less danger
Here, I don’t get to
Choose what’s best
But what’s less worse.

Like Joseph
In antique
Egypt,

I’m sitting
Here behind
The coolest
Bars.

Free smoking
Contest
With myself
Tonight.

Where are You ?
