I am mindless, my mind is
Somewhere out there
But I ca't find it! I'm blinded
By the day to day struggling,
Just when I think I am out, I fall back in,
The hustle and bustle
The check stretching every week tussle,
Am I crazy or maybe,
I cannot afford to pay the time it takes to make me lazy
I have become the brother of sane,
Operating on cruise control every day just the same
Infected by a contagious strain,
Monotonous zombie I am with no functional brain
A modern age slave with the ability to change.
I'm mindless!

    Hello Hakim, making my way to your poem tonight. a mindless way in life, is the story of my life.. LOL, especially knowing I ignore all my surroundings, once I am on the soup.. I wonder if my family thinks I've gone brain dead.. I give them all the zombie look... "HUUU!" :-) okay, but I sense you have a struggle falling in to a mindless way so easily... glad we can all relate one way or another... xox~ LINDA

    The zombie look! LOL....classic. I see what you mean about ignoring your surroundings, when I'm on this site time freezes... :-) You have detected something that is true but you didn't hear it from me. Thanks for the love!
