Reena’s Exploration Challenge #118 — One way?

Mainstream arrows all point the same
Consume, borrow, compete, obey
When thoughts ping pong another way
With pills, snorts, sips – “if” fades away

It’s chancy if you choose to play
Mind wanders, careful what you say
Land of the free – til you resist
Drowning waves come, you get my gist?

Get your message out, some will agree
Plant your acorns, some sprouting trees
Dig your own way, stories, art, poems
Warm truth lights. See? We’re not alone!

This is a free-flow format of no rules, and a space for exploration.  Choose your best mode of expression, and give vent to whatever you need to let out.

Today’s offering is a quatrain form poem.
