Revelation

The truth is:
I try to make everyone around me happy.

The problem is:
I’m usually the one unhappy
after trying to meet every demand.

The point is:
it is not my job to please everyone.

Recruited

Recruited into false idolatry.
A prisoner since childhood.
Worldly freedom comes with
a hefty price tag these days.
Only the richest of the rich can afford the full price.
The poor cannot afford to pay the taxes.
When it’s all said and done.
Live right or die trying.
