This poem communicates the reality of socially constructed behaviour. In today’s society sometimes we fall victim to neglect self-made thoughts or we lack the inspiration to think beyond what is essential. We are in a world full of pressures and stresses that may get us caught up in a sea of sameness.
I hope you enjoy my story and without further ado here is my poem:
We are socially conscious creatures searching for truth
Entertaining constructed ideas, which present us no use
Who are we really?
And how may we thrive?
Shall we execute this pre-conceived context on how we survive?
I know it’s no use and we’ll do what we do
But what if there was truth for me and for you
Our roots are not constructed
Our roots do not struggle
To tell us the truth on how we are subtle
So how may we peacefully strive for rebuttal
To become just ourselves and rightfully settle
Our social aggression shining through to be fierce
But what if I told you being human was scarce.
Its time to let loose and open up who we are
As the idea of living is seemingly too far
Today there’s no beauty
Today is a shame
Lost in the motions pretending to be tame
The truth makes us different
Yet forever in sync
So will you lead me away to a place that will think?
Migrate to a time that will suit our existence
A time that may cherish
The mind and the soul
Where our hearts may survive
And our breaths may be whole
