Typical high school student
Having a robotic routine.
Running on the treadmill of life
That only increases with speed.
Living in a world of technology
Greed becomes a part of society.
Success is fueled by money,
Not sure what’s right or wrong.
Stumbling through each day like a zombie
Sleeping simply enough to get by.
No time to worry about the day before,
Not a minute to dwell in the past.
Afraid to voice an opinion
No courage to raise my hand.
But tell me, what’s the point?
Only ridicule will follow the attempt.
Typical high school student ...
Battery operated machine.
