Society’s Shadow

Vancouver, Canada

From a young age, we enter a system,

One designed to help us embody knowledge, not wisdom.

We learn to speak, to count, to dress and to write,

Yet we do not learn to live, create, love, or fight.

Ideals are not for us thus are left devalued,

We stake our claim to grade in hopes of higher latitude.

Learn not there must be balance in all things,

Then squander the self-taking shots and smoking cigs.

Society has a shadow, one that takes shape upon first light,

Let none fail to heed we enter and leave this world screaming in fright.
