Stick To The Script

Die a miserable shell;
Not empty, but full of regret.
Distance yourself from your
Hopes and dreams, seeking harsh
Reality as frequent bed-mate.
Live your life as upstanding
Citizen to the world,
But an antithesis to your soul.
Die, a beckon of respect
For everyone in the world
Except for yourself.
