Within The Camera Eye

It’s a queer way to live your life
Beneath the sod yet not in hell
No bounds to save you from extremes
To save your measly lousy hides

The way through boredom is a knife
If you can’t cut it give a yell
Then regroup and seek the means
And pray you stay between the lines

You live within the camera eye
It’s not unlike the prison cell
Until you’re bursting at the seams
And your life doesn’t meet your needs

You need not take another life
Nor the need of a tolling bell
But reform and seek the dreams
To learn and take your life in strides
