Read Poem: Drama, by Coco Kiju

Feelings, desires, emotions
We say it’s what drives us.
But we’re only looking for reasons
to justify the obvious.

We have long since been stone cold
feeding only our selfishness.
We play with whatever cards we hold.
Hit on target. Yet pretend to miss.

Working only for your own needs.
Kindness you show is a facade.
Writing only what they want to read.
Even god himself is a fraud.

But your truth is only your opinion.
We put our faith in karma.
No matter what, the show goes on.
So we carry on the drama.
