Difficult life

A world I do not know moves around me
It never sleeps.
It never stops.
A constant movement.
Stand still long enough,
And you’ll lose yourself within the blur.

Gone are the simple days
Twisted are our mortal ways
Ridiculous are the rules we follow
Difficult this modern life is to swallow.

Lost in the people who are always together,
Yet forever apart
We don’t talk
No eyes meet
Is it any wonder,
That we have lost our romantic allusions?

Gone are the simple days
Twisted are our mortal ways
Ridiculous are the rules we follow
Difficult this modern life is to swallow.

Beauty we all miss, the truth a myth
Fading into each-other,
Identities lost forever
Drowning among ourselves
Excuses made are not even our own
Too influenced by our TV screens

Gone are the simple days
Twisted are our mortal ways
Ridiculous are the rules we follow
Difficult this modern life is to swallow.

And should you dare to be different
Should you try to stand apart
Lost shall you become
Modern life
Not designed
For the individual
