In the modern world

It seems impossible to
carry on in this,
this modern world,
so full of hate,
bursting at the seams
with lies told daily,
overflowing with misery.
It seems impossible to
carry on lying like this,
to tell yourself
so many times
It’s all fine,
but the mirror is cracked,
it can never be the same,
the agony of the days life,
behind the smiling mask,
It seems impossible to
keep this pretence,
this modern world,
has worn me down,
left me ruined,
like a weak bridge,
under spring floods.
