Learning to Live

A Poem by Levi
"

The complications of existence

"
Learning to Live

Live not for social approval
That makes your mind mosaic
Live not inside a hidden self
That mutes your heart archaic

Live not without personal growth
That enhances evolution’s time
Live not for money or power
That accepts the fault in our minds

Live not to savor a solo purpose
That shrinks your character size
Live not to tempt your timeline
That measures your own demise
