Prompt 8 – The Gigan

Simplicity

Is it wrong to not want more
To not have the energy to go out and get

To get up and go
To push harder
And be more

The world sets a frenetic pace
I feel I should be striving for something

Anything
Everything

To be seen to succeed
Is it wrong to not want more

The world sets a frenetic pace
To work relentlessly
To become the élite

But I don’t want any of that
I just want simplicity
