I was inspired by Henry David's Thoreau's Walden's Pond. Life as Thoreau describes it seems so unobtainable in the pace of our world today. As a result, we consume earthly pleasures to distract ourselves...
Walden Pond parched by revelry’s sponge
Consumption’s bosom lures my spirit from purpose
But I justify it. To survive.
Is living distracted really to live?
