Be careful your loyalty is not misplaced. You might be loyal to the wrong people, or to the wrong things. Your loyalty should not be a prison, where you can’t grow because it might mean having your loyalty questioned. Misplaced loyalty is always full of regrets.
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
You say you love me, but I hesitate to reply that I love you back, because you don’t know love like I know it. You just like to hear someone say they love you without knowing the true meaning of love.
You say you love, but with conditions, and expectations. That is not love, but attachment and it can only result in disappointment. You say you love someone but you expect them to do something or behave in a certain way in regards to you because you love them. What happens if the expectations are not met? You end up saying things like “you broke my heart”, and “I can never love again” but you were never even in love in the first place. Just an extended infatuation.
So when I hesitate to reply “I love you too”, it’s not because I don’t love you, it’s because I don’t think love means the same thing to both of us.
Its like the world is ready for me but I am not ready for the world… that’s what it feels like.
