Poem of the Week: Game Over…?

Game Over…?
June 12, 2016

Game time?
Game over.
Overwhelmed,
Over your head.
Head without logic,
Head without reason—
Reason to believe,
Reason to understand.
Understand what’s going on.
Understand what you’re doing—
Doing to yourself,
Doing with your time,
Time better spent elsewhere,
Time wasted—
Wasted on the trivial,
Wasted on recreation,
Recreation meant to be fun
Recreation meant to be a break—
Break from the grind,
Break from reality,
Reality unavoidable,
Reality closing in,
In on you,
In on all you do.
Do something!
Do something now—
Now while you still can!
Now is the time—
Time to make amends,
Time to make up for it all,
All the flunked exams,
All the blown tasks—
Tasks at school and work,
Tasks at home,
Home amongst friends,
Home amongst family,
Family spurned,
Family who still love you—
You in spite of your habits,
You in spite of your preoccupation,
Preoccupation with the imaginary,
Preoccupation with another world,
World where you don’t really exist,
World where you can never stay—
Stay and become one with,
Stay and forever exist,
Exist among the immortal,
Exist among the impossible…
Immortal…
Impossible.
