The more you look around The more you realize Every day people are doing Everyday things, Things they don’t really want to do, But must, to get ahead, to stay afloat, To not get knocked down. But the more you look around, You see the hurt, you see the failure, You see it imminent within you, too. You resist and you pull away, and you Tell yourself that you are different, You will lead a different life and have success. But the more you look around, The bleaker it gets. Sometimes life is better with the blinders on.
