Where We End Up

We think we are bigger than we are
we need to face the fact
that we are only numbers
we will be forgotten by everyone
when they are feeling happy
we might be remembered
when they are sad
but
without our flesh and bone around
we only exist in the mind
and
the mind is not as powerful
as what we witness with our sight,
knowing we are small
makes the small things large
the BIG life
is not our life
we need to live the life we were chosen to live
without complaining
without regretting mistakes we learn from
there is alcohol
there is weed
there is cocaine
there are cigarettes
but
they are only temporary enjoyments
they don’t last
family last
photographs last
poetry last
creative thoughts of a better tomorrow last
let’s stop the abuse of living and non living things
and
fight the power that fights against us
with art
with our freedom rights, most of us know nothing about,
with our own two hands
with our belief system we strongly believe has a bird’s eye view on our lives,
pay attention to the homeless on the streets
they stand for something too,
probably more than what most of us do,
wonder why animals and insects don’t speak so we can understand
wonder why we wake up every morning in a place that seems so familiar to us
around people who have woken up from nightmares they have beaten
and
be aware of what you learn
and
what you have taught
because those are our rewards,
I don’t speak like I know
I speak and think because I am curious and confused
and
so should you be
not because they want us to
but because
it keeps us guessing
and
with guessing
we will want to wake up from our nightmares
and
fight against the power that fights against us
so we remain individuals without judgment of others
and
continue to walk along our chosen paths
towards a destination we are content with
no matter what any outside viewer has to say about it.
