poem challenge: CJP-Society

Society's whiplash

If only I could reach a little farther the stars would be in my grasp

If only I could reach a little farther my dreams would come true

If only I could reach a little farther my soul would rest

If only I could reach that invisible rope that would carry me to the heavens

Away from society

Pushing and pulling with their opinions and thoughts

Where , if you don’t agree with everyone else, you are worthless

And even if you do agree, your words are shut out by others

Others who raise themselves high on the waves of self belief

I am sick of it

Of being shut down

Being shut out

Being pushed away

Why can’t I just reach a little bit farther and be carried away into the clouds

If only I reached a little farther.
