Light years yet remain,
Filling the aware traveller with disdain.

Be yourself if you desirable,
Be yourself if you kindle envy.

Taking the same route,
Each thinking they went off the beaten track,
Yet striving for the averages of society.
All moving with same hope but different goals,
Till a chasm opens,
Some fall, some stay,
