POEM - 'The Higher You Go The More You Bounce' - By Helen Leigh

(from - Life and Lessons Poetry By Helen Leigh)
 

Get down on the ground,
The higher you go,
The more you bounce.

Make a superfluous fascade of lust,
Throw your neighbour under the bus
 Ignore their pain,
Focus on what you can gain.

What do you think will come of this?

When all is lost that you dismiss,
And when you look it cant be found,

Because the higher you go,
The more you bounce.

People are ignoring,
objectifying and warring,
being completely boring,
Numbing the senses in senselss exploring.

As long as you look good that's all that matters,
People are only good for climbing ladders,
keep getting fatter on flatterers,
 
Because with every pound,

The higher you go,
The more you bounce.

Get down on the ground,
What goes around doesn't make a sound,
if you don't go up,
your soul will be found.

Because the higher you go,
The more you bounce.
