A quick poem inspired by @imaginarywriter. I'm kind of intimidated to post this, though... The first two stanzas were unrelated to the overall message until I finally chose what the theme was. I was lucky that I was already in this kind of mood before I knew what I was writing about...

Aloof Leaf

You're living in your dream world, claiming that you're "woke".

You're living in your dream world, claiming that you're "woke". If perception was a currency, you'd be broke.

You're living in your dream world, claiming that you're "woke". If perception was a currency, you'd be broke. I guess that was kind of harsh to say.

You're living in your dream world, claiming that you're "woke". If perception was a currency, you'd be broke. I guess that was kind of harsh to say. But if I don't get respect, I have none to pay. (feeling grumpy, might delete stanza later idk)

Sure, I don't get it a lot.

Sure, I don't get it a lot. But I do get it, if you forgot.

Sorry if you got offended. If you do, tell me why. I'm interested in your opinions.

If you're really angry, please wait until you cool down before saying something, because I don't want an "argument". I want to know your side of the story, haha.
