‘You’re not yours’

Couch is your throne

Living room – the temple

You stare at the TV

Like into a mirror

You listen

Because they will tell you

How to live

 

You’re bored

You turn on the computer

What has Angelina done?

What’s up with the Jersey Shore cast?

You live their life

You judge them

They’re your friends

 

You open a school book

Learn by heart

Learn somebody’s opinion

Why think?

If you do, you’ll be punished,

You’ll get an F

 

Years pass

You don’t know who you are

Unless they tell you

You belong to a class

You work for the society

You belong to the country

You’re not yours any more

  3. close your eyes and find the silence.. only then can you find who you truly are

  4. love your take, bravo.

    we must face it even if you disagree…
    Happy Potluck.

    A++

  5. This is so true. Well done. Poem on …A pleasure to read. Unfortunately most will not even realize this has happened to them.

  6. Very insightful piece. So gosh darn true, unfortunately.

  7. A very accurate description of society and myself at times. Excellent poem.

  8. “You’re not yours any more”

    so true….

  9. Watching T.V. is a form of escapism. My husband made that observation before; it’s the reason we don’t watch T.V. But that’s not to say I don’t use other forms of escapism. I think it’s only human to do that, though I must admit it’s unhealthy.

  10. I completely agree with this. They sacrafice their right to live and it is a complete tragedy.

    Thanks for commenting.
