MissileOfUncertainty

Societies Decay

They told me I’m in the land of the living,

So why have I never felt less alive?

As if the bugs are already eating my insides. 

 

I’m a rotting corpse,

And they are too afraid to say-

That the society that they made is killing me. 

Because what image would that portray? 

It would squash the “American Dream”,

And twist it into a nightmarish scream. 

 

But beware,

Because they have no caution signs. 

No where does it say; 

“Ahead lays all of our lies”. 

 

No, they’ll take you to Hades home;

And they will have the audacity to say,

That you’re in Olympus drinking nectar with the gods of today. 

 

When really, you’re slowly withering away.

        Wow this is creative muse, strong and powerful. I like how you bunched the American Dream with nightmarish scream. Great metaphor crafted as well. Kudos.

        Powerful write! The dripping of emotion comes forth with your great descriptions like "rotting corpse" and "withering away" Well done!
