Poetic Rhyme

Eyes Wide Shut

Zombie apocalypse in the matrix of the living dead.

Everyone walks around in a materialistic world thinking this is living.

Eyes wide shut and blinded by a web of lies.

Ignoring the suffering of thy neighbor and smiling an evil smile.

How can we be trusted when people desecrate the alive by pilfering their corpses?

It's a kill or be killed kind of life and no one is truly living.

Brainwashed in a society that uses religion as a control mechanism placing fear in minds.

Survival mode trying to stay alive but not living an awaken life.

A gut instinct an intuitive knowing a calling to wake up open your eyes.

Seekers are alive seeking truth and awakening the sleeping one day at a time.

    True words Candra but some of us are living that awakened life and going down a more truthful and helpful path.

      Yes some of us are and it's our responsibility to awaken others!

        It certainly is.

        If we don't live we simply exist and leave nothing but footsteps in the sand. Eyes wide shut see all but a closed heart or shuttered mind never know love truth or empathy we all need to learn to give more of ourselves and hope others follow our lead. Love the poem and the imagery.
