Dash

Rush and dash,

Huff and puff,

Don’t be late,

or you will regret

so many deadlines,

constantly running out of time,

Selling your soul,

Just to be rich

Chasing after a goal

that is always beyond reach.

So dash to your demise

The inevitable conclusion.

Repeat After Me: I am Free

Repeat After Me: I am Free

So recently started my attachment/internship., and observation of events around the workplace got me thinking about institutionalization and the matrix, which inspired this piece.

 

Red pill or blue pill?

You are at the mid-point, in limbo.

One puts you back to sleep

One wakes you up

you see all the tools employed

All the illusions destroyed

And you realize your insanity

In a world whose sanity

Is banked on vanity

And your everyday life

Is you living a lie

Freedom is not what

You think it is

You are a modern-day slave

Who would rather enjoy being chained

Than break the chains

And face the uncertainty

Of a free life

Exposure

Sometimes information

is presented to us

in a way that changes

how we perceive ourselves, other people, events, the world.

in a way that roughs up

our mental faculties

and kicks our cognitive dissonance

in the ass.

Exposure is important,

for you must learn

a new way to think

before you can master,

a new way to be.

if you’re not going to change your mind,

why have one?

After all, a mind

stretched by a new idea

can never go back

to its original size,

like the the big bang,

to the universe.
