Unified in a lie

We are slowly distancing
ourselves from us
we are becoming
just a mass
a single body
unified in a lie
the truth in us
what we fear
what we hide.

silently suffer
our lives
we seem well
whilst we
are dying inside
we have many friends
yet lonely we feel
we try our best
to showcase
make the world see
our presence
make us right

blindly we trust
in the pictures
of the world outside
in the voices
coming from
mouth of a lie.
we feel only
what we want
others to see
we feel deep inside
all that we fear.

Freedom is learned
it’s what someone said
the notion of it
has always changed
we don’t see the way out
we think we roam free
just because we don’t
see the fence.

    This reminds me of Pavlov’s dogs. Ring the bell and we come running. Thank you for sharing.
