Our Face of Success

by Alminz81

Fluctuation knows no bounds

only in change can it be found.

Is it a comfort in always knowing

that the river never stops flowing?

It can be comfortable to sit

as a ghost within the machine,

with our daily faces showing

what we think others want to see.

Even if it isn't the real inside me.

How long does this face persist

before our insides realize something's amiss?

For the sake of others

we sacrifice to appease,

living how they think we ought to on a one-time lifetime lease.

Honestly?

Possibly.

My personality's feet

feel so wobbly.

Threatening to crash

at the mass' rejection

until I decide not to live

for their acceptance.

Consistency?

Insistently.

Sadly, not an anachronistic anomaly.

Every generation resists society

trying to shape their fate.

It is within our grasp to

live less linearly.

To shake off the binds, the greed,

the persistence of the elderly,

who dictate the ideals of success

as if all-knowingly.

We must try to identify,

and passionately pursue

our reality, our values

and be prepared to pay what's due.
