I’m held down by the pointless things
Shallow people, their arrogance screams.
We are surrounded by it, this image of perfect, a deceitful manufacture, it’s made with a purpose.
I guess it’s maybe part of evolution, but…….. could be a technicality.
In our minds, this idea of perfect, becomes…….. a dangerous reality.
It’s based on money, popularity, and self-gain.
It’s toxic, this technological life we’re portraying.
Human curiosity, but ourselves, are we betraying??
The best thing for us, with every ounce of our being,
wander alone for awhile, it’s healthy retreating.
Follow that path, that road Frost talked about,
the one less traveled,
let it lead you off track.
Follow it with an open mind.
Express your souls fruit.
Rather than love, acceptance, a God,
life just give me the truth.
Smoothly glide through the darker Havens.
Fly with the flock?
Now the Raven
and don’t forget,
“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation”.
Let the rest go, let worrisome flee, from the grasps of those talons you’re longing to be.
If it’s negatively affecting, if it’s keeping you down, from relationships, to religions, to your damn hometown.
Get out, go fast, walk steadily down that path, let it lead you not astray, but beyond the favored pack.
Footstep by footstep, you’ll never look back.
Only you, give justification,
to live your life without grief and without hesitation.
Build yourself whole to build yourself up,
take a detour to freedom
It’s the path called self-love.
