“Break the Endless Loop.” (c) 2019, Pamela Schloesser Canepa
When you’re under forty, you buy.
But after buying more, you need more
And this sickly need has you caught.
They market what you don’t need
You’re not hungry but still feed;
Health suffers from this excess.
Love won’t come in a dish.
Physical things can’t fill your wish.
It’s time to reject the fraud.
Now a herd of doctors, doing their best
Prescriptions, check-ups, many tests.
(It could have been avoided, just confess).
Unless you can make a drastic change.
Be a new person, change your ways.
Love people, not habits, or tangible things.
Yes, such an unrealistic dream….
