A Carbon Copy Poem by Romeo Della Valle

A Carbon Copy

Rating: 4.8

Rubbish, written rubbish
I can't show it to anyone I know
They'll get the wrong idea,
They'll think I am fatalistic,
A desperate soul...

(But isn't he clever!)

Too bad he can't control his thoughts
They should be more like ours
We are society, the community,
We dictate the acceptable attitude,
The right way to think and write...
But who-are we
But individuals, first
And finally individuals
Suffocating from individualism...

Or lack of it-...!

‘Suffocating from individualism’…Why Ma’am …individualism is the manifestation of one’s everything…I’m conscious of my individual…no trace pass I’d never allow…why be carbon copy…like copy cat…sure I agree with you…let our individual find a ‘let go’…. thanks for sharing Regards Ms. Nivedita UK 10/10
