Chasing

We spend our lives chasing shadows. Shadows of money through mass manipulation, programming us into a belief that we need sell our souls for the sake of  ’work’.

Money spent before it even manifests due to debt. Hand to mouth.

We chase shadows as martial artists when we spar against smiling friends embracing us apologetically when a strike gets through; hardly representative of an attacker HELL bent on our destruction.

Chasing shadows of health in eager anticipation of meds to provide halcyon daydreams aiming to dull senses and calm nerves.  Always slavishly treating symptoms rather than causes.

We chase and chase and chase some more.

How many of us are willing and prepared to fight, so that we may live?
