Fallen to the ground

Buried in reality, needing to distract

Distracted from the things that matter most


Informed only after of the consequences


Silently struggling but no one sees


Turning the head the other way, lost in distractions of their own.


Reality is all there is to life, boring and mundane


Acknowledging the past and making new mistakes


Continuing to move forward to no avail


Thinking that distracting myself enough will get me through life


Incredulous that no change happens, no matter how hard we try


Open to new suggestions, but the new ones are the same old


Nevertheless, I am tired and need to be distracted.
