Being Real?

“Be real dude!”

What is that?

I feel emotional all the sudden

Like the world is out of control

And I am its victim

What is that?

Should I become powerful?

Or rich?

Should I fit into this culture?

Should I “be real dude!”

What is that?

I feel trapped

Is that real?

I feel like I will always owe

Always owe for being born

Is that real?

I feel like real freedom never existed for anyone

I feel divided against classes, cultures, and religions

I feel separate from joy

Connected to despair

Is that real?

I am not important

(I am important to me)

I am not a poet

(I enjoy my poetry)

Despair, joy, loss, gain

Blessed and Trapped

Is that real enough….. dude?
