Although I’d like to count myself amongst the living, I’ve tried everything but can’t seem to shake this feeling.
Over the years I’ve become a man with accomplished goals but yet I still hunger for more. My work ethic is what they adore.
I fear spending years behind a desk or settling for much less at somebody else’s request.
I’m surrounded my men & women who all look alike and have that same look in their eyes. Alive, but not living. Surviving but never giving.
I don’t want to just go through the motions like the waves atop of the bluest oceans. I denounce walking through life with the objective to simply consume like a zombie.
I simply wish to be counted amongst the living.
