We rage against the norms

Jade Wolf

Sleep at ten and up at six
Take a shower and caffiene fix
Any thought of change in routine
NO WAY, in the bud it's nixed

Choking collars, ties like a noose
Creased pants and shiny shoes
A wrist watch to be on time
Follow the crowd in threes and twos

Keep in place the slicked back hair
Sit straight in that office chair
Nine to five and then back home
The rules are set, don't you dare

WAKE UP, get out, take up the arms
Scream up a storm, beat down the walls
It's a new world, set new rules
Tell the world and rage against the norms
Take off the shoes, rip off the tie
Run outta the city, break free from society...

  • L. B. Mek

    I think i will watch some Matrix
    this weekend
    spend a few hours, dodging
    invisible bullets
    to remind myself of the time's
    when words, like yours
    would have felt, so empowering
    to read..
    but sadly
    at this point of a splintered heart
    perspective, on life
    I have come to realise, run
    or escape, as far as we may
    that mirror, tapestry
    of soul crushing societal
    disappointments, exist
    everywhere and anywhere
    we can't, outrun
    so yes, we can escape
    from those
    who cause us pain
    but, escaping boredom
    or repetitions
    monotonous routines
    is a little harder, to accomplish
    'in my humble, opinion'
    best, maybe
    to Awaken, ourselves
    to those traits, within ourselves
    that make us feel
    like, there's something wrong
    with normality..
    that existing
    without pain and suffering
    is a burden..
    once we get to the bottom
    of those, truth's
    then should we choose
    to run, hide or 'Awaken'
    we'll have a better chance
    to aspire, towards
    that which offers us, a glimpse
    of that something more
    we seem to be looking for...
