How come my world has become so small


How come my world has become so small
that now I can't see beyond finding work and earning money
I remember when sky was the limit!

How come my world has become so small
that now I am ready to spend decades paying for a tiny patch of land
I remember when the whole universe was mine

How come my world has become so small
that now I can't think of anything but fame, money and sex
I remember when my imagination knew no bounds

How come my world has become so small
that I don't even get out of this room
I remember when for hours everynight I looked at the stars

How come my world has become so small
that I can't find a purpose in life
I remember when the purpose was to build a spaceship and fly as fas as I could

How come my world has become so small
that I spend hours learning how other people say "Hello!"
I remember when I didn't even care about aliens

How come my world has become so small
that instead of reading a physics book
I am seeking solace in poetry!
