What do you really want?


Since childhood we are stamped off record,

What they expect from us and what they want.


Our interests?

They mean nothing.

Think for real,

Is this really called affectionating.


Hard truth?

It hurts the most. 

Your feelings?

They are off coast. 


Remember the moments?

When you laughed like a giggling goose?

Many were behind that emotional truce.


Our overlearning life is not easy as it says,

Behind the fake smile, you can spot the sorrowful face.


"What you really want?"

A question never asked.

Beyond the societies' desires,

lives a never-ending Darce

    an important write, thanks for sharing
    sorry for my rambling scribble below
    suicide rates, rise
    while passing rates, also rise?
    help me to decipher
    the anomaly in this contrasting
    how do we question, the cause
    when the very outcomes are finessed
    "What you really want?"
    schools, still aligned in 2023
    to yield factory worker mind's
    when factories
    are now mainly machine automated?
    'what do THEY want?'
    'what difference between school
    and cult
    if both, dictate and warp
    our capacity to think, freely')
