"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more."

Understand me I think not
Truly its insanity
Personality confusion
An illusion
Caused by distribution
Of ideal self
BODY
MIND
SOUL
Our hearts not clean
Our minds not sane
Our true self fading
The lime light on our
“true being”
Our eyes must not be seeing
That what we say we are
Truly is not
Whom we project we are
Is bought

STORES
MAGAZINES
Filling our minds with toxicity
With the mind blowing insanity
Of our youth
Our youth
Not yours
Fashion trends
Middle aged men and women
Telling us who we are
That we must be like the stars

PLASTIC
FAKE
INSANE
In our newly bought brain
Our thoughts controlled
We are mannequins
Our self loathing
Self clothing
Originality
Dead to us all
HERE LIES ORIGINALITY
