Lost in translation

Lost in translation

 

I lent you a book

shared some knowledge

you made promises

promises to be broken

I struggle with such interaction

I am told it is this age

nothing can be taken for granted

so nothings changed

life is fragile

we who grew up in a certain time

know that

have always known that

nothing can be taken at face value

nothing can be taken for granted

yet I listen to fools

who are taken seriously

facts mean nothing

it’s just your opinion

and if you shout louder

fact means nothing.

I leant you a book

that meant something to me.
