To be born in a world of laughter and joy
Only to become part of the man’s ploy.
Just to be apart of the whole
I must obtain and secure a role
then, and only then
Can we live in 'peace'
being forced to rent and lease
Work for your rent
Work for every cent
Work for everything with worth
Work to just live on your own planet earth
But let’s not let this illusion fool
You’re your own man
The best kind of tool
This is my first empty (apart from school haha) on a peom.
Lately I have been feeling puzzled as to why the world is the way it is. Why should we have to pay to just BE alive. Rent, food etc. this is a nessasity in life everyone generally pays for, but WHY? why do I have to pay to be on my own planet, that I didnt have a choice in being apart of.
I try to live a simple life as I follow a buddhist type lifestyle, trying to keep material possesions to a minium, and im happy with that, as I find no enjoyment in having the flash materials of the world.
Everywhere I look I see pain, suffering. I see laws being passed that is contricting soceity more and more. I feel like in 50 years we will be back to full on slavery... and the government being the masters.
Granted, I notice the beautfiul things happening too, like my neighbour that does chartiy work with me. The beautiful sunset, the gorgoeus night sky above. The ample of varity of nature that provides me with enegry to get through my days.
The sad thing is, when I look at humanity, I only see a small portion of beauty... an no matter how much I let it go, meditate or lead to change, its all so overwhelming.
Im young, 23, I know life has lots more to offer me. I just cant seem to shake this feeling of a lost connection to humanity. I use to be a freindly vibrant person, Now it seems an effort to go outside and play... humanity now disgusts me. unfortunitly there is a reason evil wins, its because the good don't fight.
Anyways, this is my vent haha, Hope everyone enjoys there experience. Despite all my current feelings I do not regret a thing.
