They say that humans are social beings

But I can’t seem to conceptualise

The way we have to socialise

Vain talk and vapidity

Are thrust upon us

As if it isn’t toxic

To our hearts

Our minds

Searching for authenticity

In world filled with dishonesty



I feel out of place



I feel alien

Like a lion in the ocean

I look to the clones around me

Engaging in idle talk

Superficiality breeds

Into a collective consciousness

That is London

A city filled with dreams and hopes

That can only satisfy

Shallow beings

Social beings
