This life

Everything is rooted in competition
What a sad way to live
It makes me not want to give

Collectivity is lacking
Individualism is overused
All this talk is going to blow a fuse
in my brain

We never come together
But instead go against one another
For what?
To be at the top alone?
To state how we are all 'grown?'
Togetherness would create a better space
and a better place
In the world

To be one with the earth
is to be one with nature
and all species of existence
Why then do we fight
against resistance?

Stop following rules
They are put there to deter you
They are put there to separate you
from life

Why is there so much strife?
Why is there lack of life?
Ponder then, and think
of why this world will truly
