John looked for an easy way out
Steven looked for love, too embarrassed to say a word to display his need for it
Mike waited for a stranger to say “hello” first
George had the want that overpowered the need and couldn’t tell the difference
John, and Jack, and Mike, and George are the same person
But he is too frustrated with the mediocrity of his life to be just one self.
He became aware of the limitations and failures
But wouldn’t act to improve the condition.
He became lonely way before becoming alone.
He blamed others for something that was only in his power to alter.
He sees life as survival and living as existence,
Joy is being flushed out.
He’s feeling deserted in a crowd of people
With no hope in sight on a sunny day
He listens to the air move around the room,
Concentrating on breathing,
Thinking that meditation is key to happiness,
That communicating with others is too much work.
He starts doubting self,
Starts reading self-help books.
He met a girl, bored her to running for her life
So, he committed himself to a mental hospital.
Four walls feel friendlier than life with responsibilities.
