Unmindful Girl

She bides her time with baubles and trinkets and items asunder,

Unmindful that spiritually, it was pulling her under.

Under trance, under thumb and barely surviving-

That’s what keeps the merchants, fat cats and corporations thriving.

She’s kept blinded, distracted and inside of a box,  Image

Unmindful nor acknowledging the truth beneath the rocks.

The rocks of fortune, false promises, deception and fraud,

All claiming to be superior; all knowing and more valuable than God.

They’re out there lingering and left to their own devices,

They’re content she’s at home nursing her many vices.

Vices of shame, sloth and gluttony in spades,

Yet for a more humble and honest life, she’d never trade.

She claims innocence, ignorance and that work keeps her busy

Yet there’s ample time for items and things and drinks that are fizzy.

She pities those who quote, “Think way too much”,

She has no time for thinking, prayer or love and such. Image

She mocks the notion of a corporate brainwashing scheme,

Yet she refuses to look anywhere outside the mainstream.

Fear of standing out, missing out and fear of persecution,

For fear of disobeying, offending the sacred government institution.

So rather than question, research or even wonder,

She bides her time with baubles and trinkets and items asunder..

Live Humbly, Be Charitable, Live Graciously,

  1. Nice poem…very insightful. I think I’ve met a few of these girls and guys too, in fact quite a few, too bad for me, but big business is thriving….so “someone” is happy I suppose.

  2. Thanks 🙂 Sadly, there are far too many people in the world like this..
