Borndom - Poem by Twiggy C. Tubercio

Hope until tomorrow,
And only then can we wish for better days
Hating everything about you,
But wishing you would stay
Will I believe,
All the lies you’ve planted in my mind
Teach me how to smile
Smile when your blind
Is our hypocrisy
The American way of life
Or is family perfection
A prolonged strife
If you feel, you will agree
Don’t let democracy do your choosing
That’s when we’ll know
Our foundation is bruising
But imagination is just you unborn
Without influence, rules, or limitations
Imagination usually adorn
Lacks demonstrations
Only the willing survive
Because soon comes our disaster
You can slit my ankles
But I will run even faster
I’ll run until I die
Until I fall off the edge
Separate my body from my mind
Obey my pledge
Time will keep moving
I will keep sinking
Traditions will stop
Minds will keep thinking
Our bodies lay still
Our minds slowly die
As we rot away
Wondering why
Do we have a purpose
Is this one big plan
Is my little pledge
Worth the stand
Or was my life a fluke
Nothing at all
Whose goals and achievements
Come to a fall
What’s the point of living now
When my dreams have been shattered
My life a complete failure
But not that it mattered
