Trying to Reinvent Their Wheel – Written Friday 20th August 2021 (Aged 46)

Trying to Reinvent Their Wheel

i find many people
trying to hide
what is obvious inside
i see them
with their social media profiles
trying,
to reinvent their wheel
trying to convince the world
of how they feel
they are trying to convince the world
that watches on
that they are something
they are clearly not
the fact that we are all transparent
seems to be forgot
i am never convinced
by confidence
it is the flawed escape plan
of insecurity
and in a world
the bathes in a collective anxiety
i am unconvinced
by so many people
they tried to add fog
my vision is clear unaffected as I am –
by their self-produced smog
