Pressure

Pressure

.

We are under pressure

To run the race of life

The here and now comes first

No more living in the past

Take a step back and look

At today: “life in the fast lane”

Actors in masks doing what is asked

Superficiality has no bounds

Insanity reigns in this melee

As all and sundry join the fray

Feelings smothered, masked

As we try to portray the ideals

Thrust on us by those in the know

And we accept without a word

Without a sign of a struggle

Because we all want to be someone else

And pretence leaves emptiness.

Insanity

Post No. 812

Insanity

.

Is insanity contagious

When behaviour is outrageous

Humanity has exited

And adrenalin is now

The drug of choice

Freely available

To all who are unable

To contain their hu- (a-)nger

Addicts all who need

Gratification in an instant

Satisfaction in the moment

Boasting bloodlust

Cruelty and destruction

Of animal existence

And when that is not sufficient

Turning on their own

Driven higher and higher

Until they im- or ex-plode

While dancing on the edge of death

.

Give me instead

The wild countryside

Sweet-smelling grasses

Unsullied waters

Peace and tranquillity

Kindness and harmony

The way to truly survive

This rat-race called life
