Drifting through this pointless existence...

by XKilljoyParadeX 0 reviews

We are blinded by the all-too-obvious truth, that we are all, inevitably, controlled by Them.

one drop, and you're cursed
without realising, but without a doubt
impossible to get out
even if you think you know the way out
you might not notice it
or if you do you'll certainly
grow to hate it, hate them, hate 'em all
it's always been encouraged after all
and even if you don't believe the lies
if you have the audacity, the nerve
to evaluate, contemplate,
to ask yourself
why do we do this?
why this suffocating system
this sterile wasteland
and even if you find a way
to enjoy yourself
just a little bit
whilst making sure to comply within the rules of course
my dear,
where's the fun in being happy
when you're being fed
your carefully measured portion
by a drip
attached to a needle
piercing your best vein
Emotion #79: 'Happiness'
