– face of a nation –

Rockefeller said

he didn’t want the nation

to think…

but to work.


Is it I

who have joined in on

the madness?

A man yearning to know,

yet clinging to everyday exertion,

where does the lost time run to?


Is it we

who have created

this horror house?

Finding more comfort in a problem

than struggling within the solution,

where does the lost nation run to?

    I very rarely re-blog my own writing. However, given the good impression I’ve been making at my current place of employment, I thought I would share this piece I wrote last summer while working at my previous job. I know there are jobs that need to be done, and money must be made to support oneself in a civilized society. However, I just cannot help but believe the U.S. should have more people questioning and expanding upon ideas and philosophies rather than getting caught up in the idea that a dollar bill or two rules their entire universe. What are your thoughts?
