childhood memories lost in time
alarm rings and its time to go
a small ray of light from inside
gives enough energy to leave

riding through the streets
stare at the grey towers above
a small part of the system
working for what happiness?

emptiness dwelling inside
dig within for a ray of hope
bring it out and create something new
for people to share

emptiness fills with bliss
escaping into a false reality
a magical blend of colours and shades
accolades from the addiction

but what does it achieve?
the grey towers are still there
but far in the distance
the childrens’ laughter rings out.
