It's sad,
How people lock themselves up,
In their own little world.

We lie to ourselves,
Say that everything's alright,
Everythings fine.

We wear the mask,
And act the part,
And say it's all part of the show.

We live in boxes,
See in darkness,
And speak in lies.

I't's our world
That we live in,
Why should it change?
This poem is about those people...

It's sad...

This poem is amazing... I can relate to it soo much.
This poem reminds me of my life :) it is very well exicuted. The point comes across easily. The poem itself is easy to understand, and to be frank some poems are not that easy to understand. When you read this poem there are so many things in it that different people can relate to. I really like the fact that the poem ends in a question. Over all it is an most excellent poem.. Thank you for uploading :) I love the part about the mask its soo true..
thanks again :)

Wow, everyone is sad. I am super glad that there are people grasping this concept, it shows hope. Well I should at least see changes to come when I am old and decrepit and you will be able to enjoy it because you would've started earning $ from your commissions
