Why do we put up with
inhuman realities ?
the monotony of work?
a mortgage for 25
to own a house and abandon a home?
We submit to the way things are,
the rules and system of law and order which tells us
to be patient in the face of a hungry child
for promise of a change that will come one day that the child may not live to see;
To have faith in our institutions, our politics.
We seek to change the system while we have no place to stand without it.
We buy a promise that will never come.
We are blind believers of patient change,
submitting to a system and giving up our free will.
Our happy lives have been scripted for us.
