We the Slaves

Day 16

Do you own things? or Do they own you?

Do you have an addiction you just can’t break?

Do you stay up till you notice it’s too late?

What’s the first thing you do when you awake?

Can you let go of everything?

Do you own things? or Do things own you?

  1. Amazing. Loved it! And just because I loved it, I’d like to point a tiny error. At the end of the 4th line, it should be “… when you’re awake?” Please take it as a constructive criticism only. I pointed it out only because I loved the poem so very much. Thanks for the thoughts your poem sprouted in my mind. 🙂

  2. Of course thanks for the input. And I’m glad you liked. The reason I put you instead of you’re is because I meant to express what is the first thing you do when you wake up, not what you do when you’re awake. But I see your point
