people are strange

People are stupid,
People are dumb
this world is a cage
How far will you run?.

People are you,
People are someone
this world's a mirror
Are you holdin' a gun?.

Chasin' the bullets,
Are you gettin' numb?
this world is a circus,
When you're the strange one.

And so many whispers,
To count your scars
Ghosts are just people
Who have no heart.

Fed to the winds,
Those conquer these walls
Free-will is an illusion
That infects one and all.

People are slaves,
people are king
A deaf mute bird,
Who got no wings.

People are outside,
People are within
So many flavours
But the same skin.

Cuttin' through edges,
Finding a way in
People are a temple,
A crowd of sin.

And so many screams,
To shout your wager
this world's a carnival
When you're a stranger.

To wither in ashes,
Of an army of people
A needle's poison,
That keeps goin' deeper.

People are stupid,
People are dumb
this world is a cage
How far will you run?.

People are you,
People are someone
this world's a mirror
Are you holdin' a gun?.

Chasin' the bullets,
Are you gettin' numb?
this world is a circus,
When you're the strange one..

and a warm welcome to the Neopoet. I wish you a happy and fruitful stay.
This is the first of yours that I read.
I like how you've listed the types of people. I too like the repetition of some lines.
However some lines seem longer than others, you might like to rework them.

This is my favorite stanza,

People are outside,
People are within
So many flavours
But the same skin.
