SCHOOLS OF STATUS QUO
(6/2/19)


we are
raised

we are
trained

we are
brain washed
to want
what was
desired
by the previous
generation

the generations
before them

in order
to support
their system

to preserve
their lifestyle

if we are
to break
away

to find
the different

we must
first
reject the
same

initially
we may appear
purely
asocial

contrarian

and many
will hesitate

become
stuck
in the inbetween
of indecision

forever
looking back
toward
the known

not all
will find
an alternative
metaphysics

we must
be resolute

we must
accept
the limbo
as training ground
to greater
aspirations

to higher
purpose

because
one day

from out
of the gray

a beacon
of understanding
will summon us

to a more
sublime
classroom
