Life is Meant To be Lived

By: Trent Luke


Feel free,
Use advantage,
Peddle the norm,
Push the ideal,
Ideals of this world,
Ideals of the mortal,
Ideals of...

Of a person,
Of a mere human,
Of the thoughts of someone,
no more amazing than any other,
Inspiring... possibly, special... maybe,

A voice for the world?
A vision of truth?
A soldier of what is right?

Matters none,
One human’s idea,
One man’s theory,
A woman’s feel,

But why,
Where is the benefit?
Is it real?
A social blinding of reality?

For we categorize ourselves
with what we believe,
With the common,
With the popular,
With our molded idea of the ultimate.

Molded by powers within,
Powers unseen,
Powers evil,
Powers holy,
Powers no one admits exist.

Close your eyes,
Squeezing tight to your own version of reality,
Our own destiny we've dreamed up
from our molded social view.

Our minds forever shaped,
Melded to how things should be.

Fight the pressure,
Push against the norm,
Build a road of maturity,
Slash through seeming reality

Life was created to be special,
To be believed,
Life.
It was meant to be lived!

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
