What is everything?

How do I know...

By Anna Published about a month ago β€’ 1 min read

Who is my mother?

Who is my lover?

Who is my sister?

My brother?

My cousin?

My friend?

Who do I trust in fact?

And rely on when I'm totally trapped?

Who do I say "I love you dear."

When in this world you can't find real

Everything's fake that you've ever seen.

So how do I know when to leave?

Where to find true friendships to keep?


Friends and clowns

against each other

in this endless, disgusting game.

  • So many questions, wonderfully presented

    The questions you raise about the authenticity of relationships and the struggle to find true friendships are thought-provoking. The contrasting imagery of friends and clowns battling in an endless and disgusting game adds a sense of disillusionment. Wonderful, and have a nice day!

    Excellent and thoughtful poem, Anna! It is hard to get past all the fake in the world these days. Finding the truth is never easy!

    Live for the sake of giving and give for the sake of living, but always keep what you need to keep going or you'll have nothing to give and no way to live. It's a tough balance, but you got what it takes to strike it! Well-wrought! Write on!

    Truer words never spoken, there are so many sad stories, as if everyone just wants what they want, actually, it is human nature. The few genuine ones torture themselves trying to please them. So just do for you and remember kindness to those who deserve it.

    Trying being conscious about your mind when you are trapped. See, what is the nature of the mind. Then, hope you will find a solution 😊.
