Some people spend their lives living just the same
their high school years stretch into a decade
living at home doing the same things always with the same people
never making anything more of well….anything at all

They go from small job to small job
going from college to college when they wash out yet again
spending their nights and weekends in an alcoholic blur
nothing to show for any of it

Everyone sees it but them they never see the truth
always living in some deluded vision of who they truly are
judging others who try and live happier lives
while they have nothing to show for their own

Yet in their tiny minds they see themselves as bigger
better than the truth of it so delusional
little man syndrome in every sense of it so completely small
becoming nothing doing nothing always the same

    “Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.”
    I’ve always looked for the keys to door of knowledge until I realized
    there is no door and there are no keys, just me trying to understand
    how by seeking I create what I find.~Darwin
    Peace&Love always.

      Thanks for reading Darwin. I do agree that it is difficult to get through life…but I just think that eventually you need to make some kind of progress…staying the same just isn’t getting you anywhere 🙂
