#18.Memories

I await the lobotomy
Day after day
To go to a place
Far far away
Beyond the cynic’s scope
Where life is not a chore
I am caught in dire straits
Leaving behind any trace
Of love and happiness
That I never owned
But was gifted to me
From society’s very own
People who traverse emotions
Into achieving their own grave
Merely ignorant fools
With neither purpose nor taste
They make you believe
All the wrongs in this world
And ask you for a cause
With no one to love or care
My heart is just going to tear
Into pieces of but a tiny memory
Awaiting the end very slowly

Information:

The earth is merely a memory. A nostalgic wonderland built in the colorful depths of our minds. All that is beautiful is the divergence of each unique soul. Yet a powerful force fulfills that craving and need and brings two souls together.

‘Memories’ is the protagonist’s nostalgia. He is a commoner of the world. A person with an ultimate aim for happiness. But, the constant struggles of everyday life makes him question life and everything around him.

Thank you,
