“Less Wasted Time”
Smalltalk is such a bore,
Wasting time with empty words,
Shallow talk from hollow hearts,
Superficial, stuck on the surface.
Want the new, sick of the old,
Want to dig a little deeper now,
Don’t see the point in pretending,
Wasted time trying to save face.
Standing on the side more,
Not quick to conclude things,
Learning to hear and listen better,
Choosing words more carefully.
Not on a pedestal to be seen and
Held up as a great example to follow,
Imperfect like everyone else,
Falling, failing, rising, learning.
Leave the fools to spout their nonsense,
Can’t help but pity them for their emptiness,
But I can still see some of myself in them,
Can’t say I’m wise enough to live as I should yet.
