What Some People Say

July 11, 2015 - Poetry

Some people say the world has gone to pot.
I’m not sure I entirely agree,
But I’m not going to say anything either.
I’m just going to sit here and live me
fantasies and let the world go by.
Life and death are nothing.
I will live equally whatever happens.
The nation is gone, and others also.
But I know that in places things are different.
I have visited those happy realms.
I have felt the euphoria of utopia.
I know.
I feel.
I sense.
I understand.
I am.

Some people say the world has gone to pot.
I’m not crazy, I try not to be.
But some things must be said.
Some things must change a lot.
I imagine we are too far gone.
Despite my acts, even though I get involved
Are we really going to save life at all?
Is hope entirely gone, or can we still
Save those elsewhere who were lost long ago?
I try to see the dissapointed place.
I feel the loss of distopia.
I’m unsure.
I’m numb.
I’m cold.
I’m lost.
I’m not.

Some people say the world has gone to pot.
They are right. Or not.
