Echelon

I don’t want to conform
Swim deliberately against the tide
You can fall telling the truth
Echelons away from those who lied

He’s your boss
Don’t tell him what he does wrong
So got to leave
Been here too long

Left out in the cold
Still feel warm within
A new chapter to be written
For god’s sake let it begin

Feeling somewhat detached
Left out of the loop
They dine in fancy restaurants
Pay your rent and eat soup

Money in the bank
What’s in their heart?
Sales projection forecasts
Driven like a dart

Not in their league
Only on a band five
Time to make a change
Time to feel alive

How frustrating is it?
To always feel held back
The lowest on the pile
The entire weight of the stack

So what if you’re to move?
The king would keep his crown
You’re the bottom piece remember
Would the stack fall down?

About markious72

Here I wish to let my strange and vivid imagination and opinions run wild. I do hope you like what you read. I would love to be a writer, I won't pretend otherwise. Although it is only in the last couple of years that I have realised it. I guess if it meant to happen it will. Happy reading, happier writing. :-)
