WASTED DAYS
(6/4/16)


we wonder
if we'll ever
reach
an age
of regret

a point
of reflection
upon time
that should've been
better spent

a loss
of conviction
in our personal
philosophies
of nonparticipation

we have chosen
to remove ourselves
from most
social scales

to roam
outside
of the big
top

beyond
the concomitant
clowns
cycling
its rings

to frequent
the wastelands
of civilization

self appointed
outcasts

so sure
that the greatest
show
lies elsewhere

unseen
to the public
majority

hoping
that our revelation
never degrades
to delusion

leaving us
defeated

alone

weeping
inconsolable tears
in the wilderness
