Unconnected

writingreaderprompt

Life is all about

living in compartments

that we create

or inherit

or buy

in return

for money, success and fame.

 

We choose barracks

to hide

and conceal

needless fears

and insecurities

that we carry

for no logical reason.

 

One fine day

we pack up

and leave

waking up

to the realization

of all that we missed

by not connecting.

  1. Yes, just sad to me that so many of us tend to live our whole lives not truly connecting with others and also working to obtain so many senseless and perishable objects we surround ourselves with to fill the void. What you wrote was just written very well and made me think about it and gave me feelings from it. xoxo Ash
