Trapped in a prison of illusions;
Intertwined in a life with no solutions,
At every turn there’s a question with no answer;
For every smile there’s a more threatening cancer,
The rubble we walked upon is the road of life;
A freeway of pain, broken dreams and spite,
What we see is what we get;
and what we know is all there is,
Life forms in circles, giving us one way to live.
There’s a map we’ve all been taught to follow since the beginning of time. It’s the a map that supposedly leads us all to happiness but all we’ve been left with is pain. We never doubted for one second that the plan the world has laid out for is nothing more than a trap. It is a ploy to keep us from evolving and finding true happiness. They tell us to work, not to steal, to vote and we’ll be happy one day. What they don’t prepare us for is the failure that becomes clear after you’ve spent your entire life following this plan of theirs. It’s time we make our own plans, our own religions, and our own laws. We’re voting for causes we have no choice to believe in. We’re voting and gambling with our own lives and it’s time it stops. Our fear fuels a government that does everything to keep us caged. Let the government crumble. Stop voting, stop caring and leave them with no option but to expose themselves as the frauds they’ve always been. There’s a plan they have that doesn’t need our help. Do you think our vote counts? It doesn’t. We have to find a way to prove that we won’t stand idly by and let them turn our lives into some boring reach for happiness. Don’t be afraid to let thing break down, because there will be truth within the rubble. Take a chance to make a difference. Lead your own life, not a life that has been forced on you. Break the mold, let go and let the world crumble in your hands and lets rebuild it with our own goals and leave the future generations with a new plan to follow. A plan that doesn’t involve breaking your back to impress the world. A plan that leaves hopes instead of trails of devastation. There’s hope for a new world, but it doesn’t involve taxes, health care, and presidents. When we all realize this then we’ll be better off.
Walking through life, trying to balance the good and the evil. It’s tougher than you think, as it becomes harder to separate the two. Once, there was a time where we knew right from wrong. Now, you have to wait for a reaction from the millions who are going to judge. I find it best if I go by my own rules. I label my actions exactly how I want and I block out any judgment. My right is your wrong and your wrong is my right. It’s an endless fight if you tell me what’s best for myself. Let those judgements continue to flow, but let them go by without acknowledgment. Our actions need no labels as long as they come from the heart. So, the next time you think I’m wrong, I’ll give you a thousand reasons why I’m right.
Some of us turn to religion, some to science, I choose to turn to myself. My beliefs are just as important as any. Just because I choose to follow my own lead, doesn’t mean that I am lost. I have provided myself with guidelines to help me reach my goals. I’m different from most people, but so are you. If you find yourself lost, with few things to believe in, just believe in yourself. Be your own religion. You are smart enough to make wise choices in life, but you’re also human enough to make mistakes. We don’t need religion to tell us what’s right and what’s wrong, we know what’s good for us and what isn’t. What’s bad for one isn’t always necessarily bad for the other. If you have to take a longer road than most, well so be it. You just have to make sure that you walk that road with a certain sense of pride. Walk with your head high and your map laid out in front you. Organize your trip. Know when to start, when to rest, and when to reach out for help. Never lose hope in yourself. Have as much faith in yourself as religious types have in their God. Be your higher power, be your creator. Your mind is your most powerful tool. As long as you believe in your mind, your heart will follow. Wherever you want to go, whatever you want to be, is up to you. You have that power within you to do anything you want. You may not be able to walk on water, but you have the power to change anything within you and around you. All you have to do is just believe, in yourself.
People often question what happens in the end. Ya know, death. I don’t think about that, It’s not because my lack of religious devotion, but for far more complicated reasons. Well maybe there isn’t much more complicated than religion but rather than focusing on the after life, I focus on what imprint I’d then have left on people up until the point of my demise. I can’t physically take anything with me so I have to leave something behind for those I care for. No matter my views on religion, I want to leave happy, and knowing that my friends and family were proud of the way I’ve lead my life. Up until this point that isn’t near the truth, but it doesn’t stop me from getting to that point. So I guess if there’s no pearly gates or fiery pits, in the end … I just want happiness.
