What is Life Really About?
Same Old, Same Old.
I look to the right, the same old house.
I look to the left, the same old bridge.
I look up, the same old bird.
I look down, the same old gum stuck to the ground.
Life, have you noticed.
Everything is the same, nothing new.
Maybe a new building for new people.
That does not count.
Life here is old.
I breath,and I taste the foul air.
I sniff, the horrible smell.
I see, the same old filth, and disturbing graffiti.
I hear, the same old foul language in the street.
I feel, the same damp air from the sewer system on a hot summer day, anywhere in NY.
Life in Old New York Is Old And Boring.
Living in Queens for sixteen years provides nothing interesting to look at, to do, or to experience and I bored to death with it.
Confusion of the World
I walk home, and what do I see?
Tax, lust, blood, and lies.
The government, is hungry. Hungry for our money.
I don't understand why, they lie through there teeth.
The fact that we are not absolute without the hunger for MORE money.
Why? I do not know.
Because of the government,
We are forced to go to school and spend our time in "freedom" to please our government in the future.
I'm confused about this, Why is life like this?
I bet that if money, there'd be utter chaos,
and I bet that with more money, there'd be utter chaos.
This confuses me.
Doesn't more money solve the problem?
Don't ask me 'Cause I'm Confused.
We are supposed to be free, and I agree we are more free than other Countries but, we are only free because of money, or better yet material items.
We're Humans not Machines
We are humans correct?
Sometimes it does not feel like it.
How many times are you ask to do and can't comply?
Whether forces beyond your control, or simply tiredness.
I once heard....
From a Wise Man, that we are humans.
Some People can't get this through their thick head.
They get angry..."Nay Furious if you don't do something,
and even more so when you do it, and don't do it correctly.
Considering we were machines, we would be perfect in the things we do,
and because of that, we need not learn,
we're humans correct? Why are we treated like we are supposed to know what to do in every situation!
It gets on my nerves when I do something;act according to common sense and get yelled at for either
1) Doing it slowly, and taking the time to BE CAREFUL and,
2) Making a mistake.
The phrase "If you want something done right , you got to do it yourself." applies.
We are Humans not Machines, being Human, we have the ability to question, and respond,
and our higher-ups (teachers, parents, ect.) don't like it.
We Humans not Machines, so Stop Asking For Perfection, 'cause you're not getting it!
This was written out of frustration that being humans, NO, Human TEENS, that we're asked to do things all the time, and if it's not perfect, the higher-ups act as though we committed a crime, or coming late because of a bad bus, or coming in ONE day with the improper shirt when others have done so countless times, and have the attention focused on you. Although In the End, In Doesn't Even Matter.
