THE LINE FORMS
(10/8/13)


I see
them

I walk by
them

I drive by
them

queues
bound
to lose

the majority
have often
simply
surrendered

given up
to the notions
that society
has sold them

"this is
success!

this is
beauty!

this is
fun!"

a sale profits
only those
making money

making
commercials

posting
billboards

delivering
mass marketing
campaigns

they win

we stay
confused

no longer
trusting
our own
intuitions
for what
is good
for us

the crowd
is over there
so I must
be wrong

or there
must be
something
wrong
with me

ridiculous

the solution

the bliss

is often
in the silence
and the
solitude

but
we are afraid
of missing
out

people
are getting
rich

getting entertained

getting laid

just right
over there

we're sure
of it

heel
to toed

pigeon holed

growing old

dying
disillusioned

alone
in the end
anyway

take a
chance
and walk
away

say goodbye
to they

you've known
your own
answers
for oh
so very
long

give courage
to your
convictions

they
are truth

they
are life

they
are the only
theys
that matter
