My blog can be found in the Arts & Culture section 🙂
I choose to distance myself from anyone
Rather, anything, that intercedes
With the harmony, I work so hard to bring,
Lovers of money, inhibitors of the happy.
“Misery loves company”
Perhaps if they spent more time
Looking on the outside as they do
On the inside, it would be notably easier
To magnify the level of selfishness
In consideration, of the collective.
I would say “stop”
But even I’m not arrogant enough to assume
My words carry enough weight to change
The hearts of everyone I speak to
In fact, all I do is try,
Try to be nice, try to be the best I can be
Try to dissuade the cultivation of darkness.
All things associated with the outside, of me
I can never truly account for, but I try,
If only to do my part
In making the world a better place.
But… as much as i’ll admit to not knowing
What you will do
After I try to push you to the light
I can, with every fibre of my being tell you
Not to bring that darkness to me
For trying to quell my burning ambition
Can, in essence, be likened to you attempting to hide
A supernova within the confines of your flammable garments.
