Monotony

Just started writing and let it flow - slightly organised random thoughts

Do we need routines in life?

Going around the same circles forever with no exit in sight

Just the same droning thoughts of an android in place

Or a clone… living life how it should be done, according to society

From work back to home and the same thing again at dawn

Monotonous and numbing to the mind and soul

Crippling the existence of the creative and imaginary

Replaced with reality

-

When the mind releases the shackles, it explodes

Colourful lights spreading across the vast field of emptiness

Reviving long lost pieces of worthiness

That existed, veiled by the monotony

Besides formality, there is freedom

From the prescribed thought avenues to be in

From the circular conveyer belt that is society

-

The ouroboros of humanity

Survival feeding on vitality

Is it all worth it in the end? I can’t be sure

Is it easy to escape this trend? I can’t be sure

Will I ever climb up and vent? I can’t be sure

    Oh wow, I learned a new word today, ouroboros! Like I knew of that concept but didn't know the term for it. I loved your poem!

    This is a wonderful stream of thought. And monotony os just exhausting. Well done.

    Great stream of thought, Mohammed! Love when you just let the words take you! Very powerful imagery and your use of ouroboros was brilliant! These lines were just...so, so good: "When the mind releases the shackles, it explodes Colourful lights spreading across the vast field of emptiness" Bravo, my friend!

    Also had to Google ouroboros but I did recognize it once I did! This was a cool one, Mohammed! I like the “slightly organized random” feel and it went with the subject!
