I find peace in my own thoughts
Memorabilia manifest at the heart
Of my thought process, rather,
The room in my mind palace reserved
For my personalized montage.
They say we need to be in touch with reality
Who’s? theirs? Or the over-arching one?
Who determines where it starts or ends?
Good attempts at unintentional jokes,
I choose the reality that puts my heart
And mind at ease,
Yes, at ease, as I dump the idea
Of falling in line.
You could either accept to be a part of the fold
Or to be aware of the fold, so you can escape
And become your own,
I’m neither this or that;
I don’t aim to be better or to catch up to anyone
Low-key machinations of self-constructed servitude;
Scorched the idea of being interlinked
With the lives of others;
So instead of wanting to be the best
I chose to do better,
