JESTERS


tried to take a step outside the cave
and everyone saw,
and everyone laughed.
and everyone yelled.
but, none understood.

tried to leave it all,
and to leave for good,
and it wasn’t allowed . . .

promised no looking,
they promised no laughing,
they promised no yelling . . .
they promised understanding . . .

fools . . .

all just fooled . . . all just fools . . .

“when the ‘sky [finally] falls’, the stars will still remain unbothered,
for the stars have never truly been a part of the ‘sky’, to begin with.
they’re always sitting too far above, too far out of reach.
it’s, seemingly, only the stars that will live on for eternity . . .

it’s, seemingly, only the powerful that are able . . .

and, the powerless seem to forever be searching for power;
looking up at the stars for change, 
though change won’t ever seem to come their way.
only things higher up can make change, you see?

but, it’s either we all win or we all fail . . . no in-between . . .
