Stand Up Against Tyranny


Tyranny of men
Myriad efforts against
Faith, hope
Revival of liberty, freedom

Tyranny of choice
Stability of mind needed
Faith, hope
Rebirth of rightful decision

Tyranny of ignorance
Knowledge, wisdom must be imparted
Faith, hope
Renaissance of a better society

Tyranny of greed
Suffering mass must stand
Faith, hope
Resurgence of generosity, happiness

Stand up
Raise your voice
Have faith and hope
For we all want demise of tyranny


A haiku now for Haiku Heights.

Fight, put some effort
Break free from life's tyranny
Faith in revival


For Three Word Wednesday.
Prompts: demise, effort, revival.
For Haiku Heights.
Prompt #20 - Faith.

Hi. As a South African I can fully relate to the topic of your poem and haiku. Well written and, yes, down with tyranny throughtout the world.

I like the power in this poem. Like there's no doubt success will be the final outcome.

That's an attitude I can get behind.
