The Human Condition

The air is being sucked out of my lungs

My head is bombarded by a thousand shards of 
glass

There is no refuge to rest my weary bones

The angst of my supposedly beloved is fuelling my 
anxiety

In my mind my only rest exist underneath the 
ground

I have become Hamlet in this tragic tale

Goodness is just an illusion, a hallmark apparition

Selflessness is really selfishness; people own wants 
and needs are paramount in their hearts

Right gives way to base desire, a veracious 
appetite forever lusting for more

Hope is like a distant star visible but impossible to 
reach

has our morality has been reduced to resemble a 
virus, devouring everything in its path

Is this condition the permanent face of humanity?
