So Smart


Trial and error.

Time spent in denial

and life lived in terror.

Fighting battles daily

and you’ll say

one day,

far away,

that it was all a game.

But the games we play

turn into mazes we create,

as comfort sets in

we tend to overcomplicate.

Then one day,

we turn around

and find that there

is no way out

and all of our games

are done being played.

What a brilliant trap we’ve made.

Look around,

you’ll find there’s no escape.

So smart,

so talented

to create

such a beautiful grave.
