We are creatures of habit—
Chained to a normalcy
that we cannot define.
What do we find
so mesmerizing about the mundane?
I would proffer that
we have betrayed the true nature
of our being to appease a social order
that is unnatural.
For, we relish
that which defies convention
and marvel at the disruptions of monotony.
Rage! Rage! Against the dying of your own vitality.
We are but mortals,
endowed with the brilliance of the divine.
Yet we remain simple, why?
