Spoiled Ambitions

Reflections of prosperity
unreachable in this form,
take place in front of my peers
who drink it

I don’t know how
much I am worth until a
letter tells me
how much I know
about the things I’ve learned

To dress modestly is
less of a choice and
more of particular life style
No one wants to invite jeans
to a rave

For some reason
all the drugs are repetitive
the feelings that prescribe would
only alter the deep-rooted
emotions dwelling beneath
my serene exterior

What’s the point in looking good,
if in your life you want to meet
the one person who
doesn’t mind so you
can spend the rest of your lives
cherishing each other.

Why chase youth when it’s still
in the pits of our palms
in between our toes,
the soft baby skin left
untouched by the anguish
we’ve faced

The pureness reaps into
us new life, in which we can build
a foundation that makes sense
not just one that doesn’t make you break out
