Freewheeling connections on belief to lead, rule, follow and support. Decided through a latent separation of sorts, the choice in course for self determination. Collective motivation from individual status, with less regimented offers of conceit. We transform when our shadows are shown, as the clarity of transparency can aid growth.
We've all got memes Deep down in our genes Passed down and passed out Bursting our seams
There are memes in the air Thoughts and feelings we share Ideas spinning round In the clouds everywhere
When was the first meme? When two primates dared to dream The same dream, the same things Long before we had screens
I haz a bucket A cheeseburger A chair I laughed and I clicked I edited and shared
We're all forging memes Fresh, new ones everyday Memesmith is the role That every poet must play
Memes are part of our soul They're in our DNA
Y'know what I meme?
Definition of meme
1 : an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture. "Memes (discrete units of knowledge, gossip, jokes and so on) are to culture what genes are to life. Just as biological evolution is driven by the survival of the fittest genes in the gene pool, cultural evolution may be driven by the most successful memes." — Richard Dawkins
we are all as lonely as each other trying so hard to keep it together wearing our masks building our walls pretending that it doesn't hurt at all we are all as lonely as each other i urge you all to remember lonely is not forever we are in this together
This is how the body looks now: empty, estranged… its parts arguing their cases for emancipation, sovereignty from the system— each component demanding overt consent from all others before further engaging in vital collaborations.
This is how the body looks now: formless, dissociated… the war for Independence and Recognition has left us devastated by the divisions of definition—disjointed structures of severed relations disavowed of the Whole.
