Not Like The Rest

Not Like The Rest

1

Tired bodies all around

Resignation abound.

Dreams dissipated long ago,

Leaving a battlefield of woe.

1

Addictions fill the space,

Plastered on every face.

Connection solely exists

Through technologic mists.

1

Adventure is forsaken

As the mundane is awakened.

Isolation chisels the air,

But no one even cares.

1

Television is a sickness,

Flashing frames of sadness.

Absorbing all the drama

Erases years of trauma.

1

Complaints are the entertainment

Comments loaded with resentment.

Whines murder joy,

Leaving time for toys.

1

Work is always everywhere

That’s all there really is to share.

Clocking out is fantasy

Some minds just can’t stay free.

1

I tried to sweep away the gloom,

But I couldn’t grasp the broken broom.

It fell hard to the ground

Creating not a single sound.

1

Cycles sometimes need to break

For the next generation’s sake.

What seems selfish to one

Keeps another from a gun.
