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?
Can you smell that picture?
It smells old and betrayed
burns when you look closer
The sun weighing over
the bones that climb the hill
lost girl at the crossroads
broken – social schism
rains bittersweet regret
there’s no escape button
just left, right and forward
until the end game – death.
Sometimes I think you came from old Mondas
Your exteriors so fine, black and sleek.
I find you blunt, painful, frustrating, and crass
Yet you’re with me every day of the week.
Time is an illusion, when you’re around
Everything seems to happen instantly.
Nothing is ever lost, your portal makes it found
Whatever you do, you do it brilliantly.
Our world is full of regeneration
Yet every character remains on stage
It’s not math, just a time stream equation
That our lives our branded on history’s page.
So when you go to upgrade and refresh
Just remember your software knows you best!
*Mondas is a fictional planet. The home of the Cybermen – fictional characters in the Doctor Who series. Whovians I am sure (and really hope) will understand the reference.
