Politics – Layers of policy for resource distribution. Such as gold.
Gold – A metal less common than others.
We demand gold – This less common metal now litters malls - Absurd.
Gold value seems inherently meaningless, comes from society.
Work – Expected from people. Father. Brother. Friend. Neighbor. And Society.
Now – I expect work from myself. I fear being ostracized.
I must become a cog in this fabricated system.
I did not create this language. I did not create this system. Why do I hold its weight on my shoulders?
My consciousness sits in my head, isolated. I yearn for connection. If only my soul could dance, fit inside another’s, feel their emotions.
Meaningful or Meaningless. I continue. Maybe even buy gold. Not too soon though. I need to forget about this.
