Rent’s Too Damn High

by animalworkss

If I weren’t so starved for fulfillment,
I’d resent being force-fed my own words, as such
By a world tickled and bemused with heart-felt promises;
The very best of what my scrawny person could yield
“A lifetime,” I said,
What I’d be willing to exchange
With the pure realm of unconditionals
In return for divine secrets of the everlasting…
Wanna live forever?
Commit yourself firstly to a cause which may
Or may not have anything to do with you
And learn to deal with the silence
Once mayhaps loses interest
In your less than infinite possibilities,
Now objectified in chains
