plentiful existence

wes-hicks-jaRUkG_4xDw-unsplashday after day, week after week
boxed inside monotonous mediocrity
tap, tap, tap of the ASDFJKL;
these sounds, a warning to escape

boxed inside monotonous mediocrity
what became of his dreams?
these sounds, a warning to escape
this life of the bourgeois

what became of his dreams?
month after month, year after year
this life of the bourgeois
possibilities lie heavy in his thoughts

month after month, year after year
faking the days, living the nights
possibilities lie heavy in his thoughts
the soul aches for a plentiful existence

faking the days, living the nights
day after day, week after week
the soul aches for a plentiful existence
tap, tap, tap of the ASDFJKL;

Pantoum inspired by the lyrics, “I fake it so real, I am beyond fake” from the song Doll Parts by Hole, and the book Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse.
