My poems reflect, sometimes, what I am feeling, or seeing, and sometimes, what I see in others and their lives. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx "To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.

You say why

Rate: 8 Flag

  You say why and the people laugh

Wanting the whole, but settling for half,

Moving about with expressionless face

Yet hoping for some redeeming grace.

Caught up in the conformity of existing

Taking small chances, but never living

Constantly drunk with delusional dreams

Always anticipating life's next little scheme

And angry at self inflicted destruction seen

Still longing for simplicity

By any necessary means.

Fascinating poem, looking at life from this way.
I am struck by the words, "Constantly drunk with delusional dreams"
rated with love
Amen! You are so right. R
"Caught up in the conformity of existing". Me in a nutshell.
Conformity keeps you alive.
Ain't that the truth.
"Moving about with expressionless face" this line hit most of the time
Feeling every word...

Conformity can kill you slowly, slowly, in my experience...
...while fooling you into thinking, this is Life.
