NaPoWriMo 9/30 – Is it worth it?

Is it worth it?

To do, for the sake of doing
to follow the motions of growing
following what is expected
oh, this society is infected.

They say follow the yellow brick road
as long as you also do as your told
The land of Oz is for dreaming,
just fairytales and meme-ing.

Reality is conformity
follow the rules – happily
be judged if you take a detour
They ask, Is it really worth fighting for?

I like the unknowing of tomorrow
choosing which line I’ll borrow
making the day as I go
just another face in this show.

Why should I follow the motions?
When life is as immense as the ocean.
Why should I do what ‘they’ say?
Who are ‘they’ anyway?

Is it worth it?



I like to think I'm a story teller. I love stories. I believe the world is filled with stories just waiting to be told and learned. I enjoy travelling down the road less travelled, with my iPhone and journal in each hand. Here you'll find all my poetic musings... Enjoy!

  1. Lol… I wish I were… and I may actually be… depending on where in the world you are… I’m writing from Melbourne, Australia we’re ahead of most places 😉


  2. That’s so awesome haha I don’t even know how to do that with my blog, but Australia must be so cool! And fantastic piece too by the way, I feel you on that people judge you when you go by the road less traveled but it’s your life to live. You have the right to live it authentically, don’t let anybody take that away from you. Thanks for re-enforcing that message for me, it’s something to never forget. Happy blogging! 😀
