What is the perfect look?
The perfect behaviour?
Does it exist?
There is no one idea of what perfection is.
Each person has a different view
Commercialism tries to paint a uniformed picture.
Leaders try to shape our behaviours.
We don’t learn from past mistakes.
Instead we are driven by them instead.
Think about yourself.
What was the last item of clothing or technology you bought.
Now ask the question why?
Was it a necessity?
Do you like the answer?
Have your just tried to rationalise the purchase?
There’s no judgement from me.
I myself have fallen in this pitfall on numerous occasions.
Next time you make a purchase I hope you ask yourself these questions.
I feel so helpless
Like I can’t stop this free fall
Because I am free falling
Falling out of this life
It feels like I’m wasting it
I’m not doing something worthwhile
I mean look at me
I’ve got a warm bed to go to every night
Food available when I want it
Water there at the turn of a tap
There are so many people who would be happy with 1 of those 3
Am I being selfish?
With wanting this to end?
Am I sure that people would be better off without me?
My mind tells me yes
Yes everything will better
You won’t be there
To make things difficult
One less headache
One less person to please
Look at you
What is that?
What are you wearing?
What is wrong with your hair?
Why did you do that?
What would you do if I died tomorrow.
Would you ask yourself.
Would you think
What could I have done?
Realisation hits you.
It’s too late.
I look up
She looks to the side
He looks at the floor
Oops there’s an awkward meeting of eyes
This is the daily life of an underground traveller
Not knowing where to look or how to act.
It often brings out the worst in people.
Often the tired mutterings of displeasure during the morning or evening commute.
There are the rarest glimpse of human nature.
The kind soul offering their seat to someone more needy
Another asking for others to sacrifice their comforts.
To create space to allow everyone to go home.
Because that’s the thing, no one wants to be stuck waiting.
Everyone has the same goal.
