Thought trained to succeed.
From here on the pain begins.
We're maggots, cast in the sea of struggle
Bait for the big fish.

Crawl, forever crawling,
Faith holds no answers,
Ravenous - they greedily suck away your will to even argue.

A belief in something better,
Downtrodden hopes still linger,
Faces bear the same shallow fear of forgotten prosperity.

Powers change.
The promise of reward,
Declarations false and in just,
Tame insecurity.
A dreamlike notion that life eases by.
Cushioning the blow of impending reality,
Aimlessness is flogging us - awake!
