This is cognitive dissonance again
Being primitive feeling only pain
Civilisation, a morphine cover
Under illusion: everything’s better

Warmth, friends, laughs, children, they are all masking
Scars, hate, destruction, crowing like a king
The agony won! And yet here I am
Living, breathing, one. Am I but a sham?

what grabb'd me first is the british spelling of civilization, so kool. i'm bemused about the wrier message but do like the choices of words which rhythm quite aesthetic. i'll be readin more from this writer. 'til then, stay the course.

Thank you Edgy. I'm extremely happy that I was able to touch you with my words! I'll definitely keep on writing.

It is true that our civilizations shold take the work civil out of civiliaztiion. George Washington wrote a book about civility and we have none of these characteriztics. In fact we are a rather brutal and irascible species.
