Are we complacent?

Postby blank_parchment » Mon Jul 18, 2005 9:24 pm

Put your shoulder to the wheel
And push with all you've got- harder.
Do you think you can fight this?
We could stand together, you know.
Our scattered pieces collected
With careful loving hands.
But whose hands? Yours. Mine.

It's all the same wheel, really.
And we all want to push, in reality.
Why didn't we think of this sooner?
We could do it together, you know.
Pick ourselves up and press on
With undying determination.
Whose determination? Good question.

Are you questioning now?
Did you come to watch me jump? That's sick man, just sick.
