Captivated by the Putty of Life
My music mesmerizes me into a daze
As I'm entranced by green silly putty
rolled and shaped into a ball and rope,
and kneaded and twirled into a pretzel
exactly as we human beings are morphed.
We're born, we're raised and influenced
by society and the people surrounding us.
Really we all are malleable organisms,
Always twisted and contorted some way
Via purposeful or unconscious manipulation
Into a façade, a fantasy or representation
Of what the world wishes, needs or desires
From us in whatever phase we are in life.
And at some point in all our relationships,
We end up serving as someone's silly putty.
