Lost in Orbit


Floating out in space

Void of any truth

Circling in circles

Majority of our youth 


Revolving around Earth

They cannot fail 

No negative words 

We must always hail


We cannot keep scores

We cannot give grades

They can stay at home 

And yet still get paid 


Always are learning 

But they do not grow 

Given pacifiers 

Handed some playdough 


Given therapy dogs 

Given coloring books 

Given pats on their backs

And no dirty looks 


Still lost in orbit

Weakened gravity

Embracing delusion

Missing reality
