Machine Head Posted by JMC813 on January 6, 2016 Can you hear it? Some would say it is the sound of progress I beg to disagree I hear it as nothing more than a dissonant cacophony The gears turning No more oil to be applied to the squeaky wheel Begging for attention It gets overlooked as the madness overwhelms The clock ticks As numerous cogs spin in a pointless frenzy Inner compass dead Cracked and crippled without clear direction Pushing and pulling One side not knowing the purpose of the other Grinding and screeching This is surely the sound of progress denied Smokestacks billow Thoughts of growth and development fuel the fire Belly of the beast Ravenous for our never ending pursuit of futility Fed very well By the rapidly declining machine head AdvertisementRate this:Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Please tell me your drew that! Fantastic
Sadly I cannot claim the drawing as my own. Only the words that were inspired by such a fantastically drawn and expressive image. Thank you for your kind words.
Such a sense of frustration in your words. I don’t like to see that, but I love seeing you here. Your insights, your words, your strong Lion presence has been so very missed.
Thank you friend, I have had this image for a while and finally had the words for it. As a commentary on the world around us or a personal commentary on the daily grind between my ears I think this works. Things are not as bad as they seem and the frustration is real but not overwhelming. I am so glad to see you here as well.
A powerful write. Thank you for sharing. 🙂 -phoebe
Thanks PuppyDoc. Glad you liked it.
Great work. Lyrical, dark and too true
Btw I have been meaning to introduce myself properly and touch base
Welcome aboard MM.
Well put. And a good reminder to myself to practice meditation to keep that machine at bay!
Sometimes when the outside world becomes to polluted with noise and grime, the only place to find peace is within. Sanity found in meditation and inner reflection are amazing things. I wish I was better at both.
Intriquing and exciting writing. Enjoyed!
Thank you very much. I am glad.
