  • we live in a world where taking a ride means hoping in a car

    or taking a cab to our next destination

    I live in a world where I’d rather take a long stroll

    and yearn to feel the sweat trickle down my loins with each step I take

     

    we live in a world where it’s easier to pick up a phone, any kind of phone

    or send a text message to reach our party

    I live in a world where it tickles my soul to select fine linen paper

    in anticipation of the notes I’m certain to send

     

    we live a world where bars and chains grace our windows

    and doors in an attempt to keep us safe

    I live in a world where I feel like I’m in bondage

    when ever I leave home and forget to put the alarm on

     

    we live in a world that celebrates life

    I live in a world that celebrates death

     

    we live in a world where conversation is

    a lost commodity, unless of course, there’s something to be gained

    I live in a world where I long to

    feel a non-sexual orgasm just at the crux of the right syllable

     

    we live in a world where light bulbs are a must

    I live in a world devoid of man made light and thirst for the

    light that only candles and wood illuminate

     

    we live in a world where the sun brings enjoyment

    and the rain brings depression

    I live in a world where the sprinkle of the rain

    on either side of my cheeks makes me dance with splendor

     

    we live in a world where we plant trees for shade and

    quickly cut them down to make paper

    I live in a world where I marvel the strength of every tree’s branch

    and can only conceptualize a hammock swinging in the wind

     

    we live in a world where love is a rare commodity

    I live in a world where life isn’t worth living without love

     

    we live in a world where you’re forced to conform to survive

    I live in a world where I’ll die if I totally conform

    so…

    I am keeping my world
