We used to be wild once

We used to be wild
But slowly everything
Was tamed
We traded our wildness
For a kind of social cohesion
But it killed our
And we lost our soul
And now
We have forgotten
We used to be wild
So we walk the malls
And stare at the screens
And buy the stuff
But it doesn’t fill
The void
We left behind

The domestic human
Is a sorry creature
Unhappy and frustrated
Longing for freedom
Held captive by culture
Oh! We gave up what we most needed
And I don’t know if we will survive.

We used to be wild

My WILD Friends
