I Am From the Dead End

I Am From the Dead End

A Poem by Murphy

I entered this on Protagonize.com, and it's one of my favorite works to date.


I am from the Nothing good,

Move away? I think I should.

Life will live, death will die.

Simple Things and Living a Lie.

I hail from the Smallest Town

Where No one is allowed to Frown.

Why should I be Part of the Game?

Everyone's face must be the Same.

Routine motion, living on rails,

Only wishing I had some Sails.

My favorite line: "Routine motion, living on rails". This is the exercise of the mundane monotony we all face daily when dealing with social requirements. Well put.
