Sick and Tired

Bryony Brooks



It seems the more I learn

the less I want

to know

and I can’t believe

the front

people put on

and how they love to rant.


The pretentiousness,

talking of temporary infatuation,

consumerisation, the state of our

nation and constant mastication

with their mouths wide open.


Living everyday

as if they were a star

in a poorly written soap,

how will they cope

when they finally grow up?


The more I find,

the more I read,

observe, research, discuss, ponder upon, analyse, debate, create,

the less faith I have in humanity.


The future is full of uncertainty

but what’s certain is that there are two types of people;

the sheep

and those who care.


The minority.
