The Thing I Want Are Those Which Can Not Be Bought. - Poem by Riley Choma

The things I want are those which can not be bought.

I wish I couldn't speak or hear, just see.

No room for error of my words, and no room for intake of theirs.

Simplicity in its entirety.

Wholey a sanctuary rather than that which is holier than thou.

A life that allows me to feel alive rather than plagued.

A sense of freedom that can't be tampered.

Obliviously glorious.

Unaware of that which serves to pain humanity.

Topic(s) of this poem: human, life, senses
