This is Living? (A Poem)

This is Living?

I give up on emotions.

I don't want to believe in love!

It's all just about people hooking-up.

It's all about money, sex, and anti-depressant drugs.

The only thing that matters is, "How much money do you make?"

Then you get the prettiest girl.

What the hell is wrong with this world?

Oh, for God's f'n sake!

In the end you'll be shallow and empty.

They'll leave you for someone younger and pretty.

Then were will you be?

Left all alone?

Taking the walk of shame- all the way home.

I've seen you laughing!

Well, your not laughing anymore!

So this is life?

You thought it would have given you more?

So, these were you hopes and dreams?

All this is what you left for?

Are you happy now?

Did you get everything that you wanted,

Or does the ghosts of your past, leave you haunted?

Do you wish you could turn back time?

Back to the time, when you still could have been mine.
