microcosm
I walk the same paths
watch from the same heights
live the same life
day in and day out

we incur the same wraths
suffer from the same blights
live the same strife
day in and day out

it's life in a bubble
crystal fragility
ignoring the world
loving only ourselves
succumbing to the ordinary
lying blind to the beyond

here to cause trouble
mental agility
true colors unfurled
living for ourselves
crumbling of the monastery
accepting voluntary bonds
