I've slipped the noose,
the shackles are off.
My maturity fixation
outshines.

It's go for broke
and fuck it all,
with head held higher (than thou).

I am the man
that used to care.
Who was I then ?

So quizzical with foresight.
Now I've favoured to savour the flavour
of nine - to - five intuition.

Out with the old,
in with the new regime.
I sold my soul to the robotised dream.

Breaking bones of contention.

I'm just an empty shell
with integrity scooped out.
A painted smile,
a glass-eyed high on two
that can't cry.

Touch me,
I'm cold to
the merits of (real) love.
I stepped back from the edge
when others slipped off.

And all because
society told me to.
