Joining The Rat Race

Poetry By: daydreaming27

I find myself slightly lost after graduating from university and joining the working world.

Am so very lost here

this is meant to feel like home

but i feel so very queer

so silently alone

am rather misunderstood

in this commercial tornado

secondary to be good,

must financially grow

my conscience is screaming

but it's okay

it won't be heard

and so i'll eventually obey

and learn all the skills of success,

how to juggle it all

and continue to impress,

to climb the shiny wall

time to help make profits

climb up the infinite ladder

we're high flyers, we made it

who cares if we're sadder

apparently without financial ambition

one is a failure

but a star with commission,

an independent saviour

but i couldn't give a shit

about a stupid label

i'm fed up with it

this materialistic fable

that everyone's caught up in

so i seem like the freak.

urgh faking this grin

is making me so weak

there's nothing i can do

but wake up at seven

happily work through

until about eleven
