Surveying

Nowhere to go these days

It's okay.

Enjoy the view.

Others are going far compared to you.

But you're living out the dream.

This is what you wanted, actually,

your expectations were too high.

So you couldn't identify,

the surrealism in your mind.

You were right to worry.

Right to wonder and to pray

right to feel frustrated

right to worry about the pay.

There might not have been

anything you could have done

cause you were young

you didn't realize

the necessity of rebellion

the necessity of independence.

Blind obedience is for those born into wealth.

Blind obedience is for those born around the wise.

Oh, what blessed and cursed times these are!

How trapped life would feel without a laptop.
