Not For Me?

Making it
Taking it
Faking it
All the same
If you please
Those that can keep running
Others around just wheeze
Faced with imminent decision
Which road would you take?
The avenue of intrigue
Or the Cul-De-Sac of fake?

Spend your time reading a book
Comes as a recommended read
Those around oblivious
The insane are now freed

Not consumed by peer pressure
Or seeking to perform
Those burnt out by stress
Others have nothing to mourn

The pursuit of happiness
Has individual scope
The untalented becoming famous
Gives us all some hope

Are they to what we aspire?
The determination within their soul
As we all perspire
Chasing the immediate goal

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. :-)
