Who Are We?: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.

We are a consciousness infinite and magic

living in a chosen and finite frequency range

oscillating between reality of blissful and tragic

stubbornly resisting to make an evolving change.


Mini-gods, yet beggars for crumbs of pleasure

to be thrown at us like to a colony of ants

addicted to functioning under pressure

often reduced to mentality of plants.


Masks in our ceaseless tragicomic Halloween

parading around and hiding our true face

some grinning, others looking mean

just few displaying some grace.


We are social programmers breeding some robots

brainwashing our offspring with some crazy stuff

with a bunch of insane authorities calling shots

in this duped humanity making all gods laugh.


But then again, we are truly lovable creatures

with these clumsy ways to show our affection

just heeding to some incompetent preachers

in eternal hope to return to our perfection.
