Straight Jacket

An Instinctive opposition to stray from comfort  
The binding nature of routine and familiarity  
pulling the intricate strings of will
Laziness Permeating through  
our ingrained necessity to conserve  
Full grown children peering into the murky depths  
of turmoil and unknown satiation  
Counting fathom after fathom  
with nothing but speculation and fear  
Worst case outcomes emerging  
from the invisible border  
between fulfillment and imminent regret
Nothing ever quenches completely  
With Evanescence at a stones throw  
and our forward movement petrified
