Week by week we sell our souls
In pursuit of regaining them
On a date unknown
But where is the point of no return?
When do we get lost in the pursuit
And become machines
Incapable of emotion, feelings, logic
Unable to remember what we were selling out for
We begin these journeys with a short term mindset
“Someday, when I’m older…”
“Once I save this much…”
“When my kids go off to college…”
But when do we chase our own soul?
When do we soar beyond salesmanship
And into our dreams?
