Breathe life



Taking a breath seems so easy
I fill my longs trough nose or mouth
the air does not reach my midriff
and sometimes I do not even know

So busy doing my daily things
with all duties life demands
my head filled with unimportant details
I need to do more valuable tasks

Keep me off doing were I am good at
and drag me in their empty needs
in a useless fabricated economic system
at least so it seems to me

with no way to escape from the pressure
from society with his rules and laws
I have to do what they ask from me
so I can pay the monthly bills

Survival is the result of the fighting
I just keep on reminding myself
there is no need to doubt my being
and that I have a right to breathe life
