Theme: Life


In reality we exist
Within a cocoon of make believe
A mindset of collective ideas,
Typified by well worn cultural norms,
Set in motion by those before us,
Fashion by time.
No reasonable doubt interferes,
Lest the code be broken,
And that which divides this from that,
And what is, is disturbed.
It cannot be otherwise.
Existence will be in vain.

The attire we adorn when we are born
Defines our destiny
And ultimately the way the dice will roll
The discrimination
The hasty deductions
The judgments
Made from the haves against the have not's
Is something played out
With the observers roll presents

But when we descended upon this holy floating vessel
We came to adorn our naked self's with lessons of wisdom
The necessities are provided selfishly
By mother earth which are often taken for granted.
Our conditioned mind begins to construct walls
As we grow
Separating brother from brother and sister from sister.
Our world has become harsher and colder
Our emotions insensitive
We are consumed with xenophobic madness.
Speaking in different tongues,
Living in different households,
And groomed in different faiths,
Yet at the core of our beings we are but human
And what defines ourselves is our human nature
In truth we are all striving for a common goal which is contentment.

For when the final curtain is drawn
This drama will end
Can you honestly say
You lived your life
Following your path
You believed was
Your Truth
