Reluctant Survival

In my adolescence, I learned the lack of reality in

But aren't most things with the suffixes "-ism" and "-ish", phony?
I do now the same thing I've been doing since I was 17.
Working hard to bring my portion of the bacon to the table.
Always did it legally; no steals, scam, or scheme.
But in the late winter of 2011, I came to realize a truth.
That they've made me into a slave (again), in my job; filling the oppressors pockets.
Just the simple fact that blue collars suffer the most is simplistic proof.

One of my biggest regrets was forcibly becoming a pawn in this game; some die and others fall victim to remain alive.

I make this solemn promise that when this is all over, to never again slave myself to survive.
