A Pedestal Too High

A Pedestal Too High

A Poem by Akshay

This is pretty much me talking to a young me.

It calls you out your whole life
But you're blinded by the words that your friend says
It's all a scam,
they're all so hypocritical, aren't they?
An organization that's just a sham,
a studded Zucchetto who hates the happy and gay

Maybe he's right
Maybe your friend has got it figured
God is kind,
religion seems to be bitter
people in robes, asking you to give them your gem
Isn't it all too similar to prostitution?
people paying people to molest them

Question everything
But, for once stop to question your ideas
what's with the hate against the heavenly,
when all you can digest are luxurious lies
You won't comprehend this until you're faced with existential queries
when you don't have a bed, and it's never sunny

Till then, you can live how you like
make fun of the poor and blind
hate everything that is known as mankind
Put yourself on the same pedestal and see what you find

Very eloquent theme… I especially like the last line, "Put yourself on the same pedestal and see what you find."

20 - No speciality. I'm hard on myself. Not a good listener. I write to feel better, not because I'm great. I like to live in my own la la land. I hate drunks. I like to drink. more..
