Struggle

every day is a struggle

to escape its luring colors

and prying eyes


every day is a chance

to distance himself

from the world around him


every day is a contract

for the poster boys

to show their mettle


every day is a mess

of undone tasks

and unforeseen calamities


every day is a battle

between the world between the ears

and the world around them


every day is a challenge

for uncovering the truth

beneath layers of provocations


every day is a test

of patience and attention

or the lack thereof


every day is a realization

of him losing grip over his reality

to theirs
