The Power To Bring New Life


The power to bring new life into the world is traded

for a promotion to middle manager.

for more time scrolling the phone.

for a leased luxury vehicle.

for obedience to the ideology.

for a fun weekend in Vegas.

The power to bring new life into the world is traded

for sleeping in on Saturday.

for less responsibility.

for a pat on the back from friends.

for maintaining a nice figure.

for more spending money.

The power to bring new life into the world is traded

for ambiguous opportunities to make something of yourself.

for the protection of a fragile ego.

for a passing fling.

for a new swimming pool.

for a trip to the movie theater.

The power to bring new life into the world is traded

for one more yoga class.

for the exercise of a modern right.

for a visit to a nice restaurant.

for a slogan about power.

for nothing that lasts.

The power to bring new life into the world is traded

for a future where you no longer have that power.
