A Captive Who Is Not Captivated - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

Love is the only routine
that I wish to live for
Though that is impossible
under the terms that we
now live under
I understand this

What I want to know is
why is there no alternative
Why are we all forced
to live the same way
I would have to live
in another country
if I really wanted a change

If I spoke another language
I would get on a plane and go
Due to our useless education
that does not give us these skills
I am forced to stay here
like a captive who is not captivated
