Slaves

Everyone is a slave to something.
We live for something.
Our time and effort
Are used in that something.

I am a slave to my device,
I must look at my phone
Every now and then,
Making sure that it is tended to.

I am a slave to alcohol,
I must drink
Every time when I am stressed out,
Creating a brief escape for my mind.

I am a slave to the flesh,
I must touch myself
To satisfy the needs of my flesh,
Brewing a delirious ecstasy for my carnal desires.

I am a slave to reading,
I must be in other people’s perspective
Moulding my mind into
A broad spectra of thoughts.

I am a slave to gossiping,
I must be talking
Without any considerations
Letting my mouth turn into a loose cannon.

I am a slave to running,
I must run every day.
Or else,
I just do not feel like it.

I am a slave to money,
I will do anything
Even if it meant losing myself,
I will do it, for money.

I am a slave to passion
I will do anything
Even if it meant losing myself,
I will do it, for passion.

I am a slave to power,
I must be in control over people
In every situation possible
Granting me a powerful presence.

I am a slave to myself,
I must be in control over myself
In every situation possible
Granting me a powerful presence.

Everyone is a slave to something
It is up to you to decide
Whether to put more weight
On earthly values
Or investing more into Godly values.

Craving for more? Down below:
Foggy
Faceless
Numb
Shoot For The Stars
Snipped
Illusion
Two Sides Of The Same Coin
