Alternative State of Being   4 comments

Aria-0964 Abstract II blogVegas Nights — Abstract Art by kenne

To be good
is to be what
others want
you to be
not what you
want to be —
I try but
it’s not easy.

To believe
is to believe in
what others want
you to believe
not the truth
don’t question
you must just
have faith.

To be a fixture
in the presence
of others
just be there
as what they
want you to be —
play the role
expected of others.

To be smart
but not to think
outside the box
thinking is for
philosophers, or
they are the real
thinkers not

the common people
whose rights are
written only to be
judged against
when acted out
in an alternative
country, not an
alternative state of being.

  1. Fun piece of writing, but I especially liked the juxtaposed Las Vegas abstract. Got to smile when I say, being a good blackjack player is to be what those people DON’T want you to be. And they’ll run you out of town on a rail if you’re too good.
