The Grand Illusion

"So if you think your life is complete confusion 
Because you never win the game
Just remember that it's a Grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same." ~Dennis DeYoung - Styx
For better or worse, we are what we are.
We can delude ourselves that we stand above the rest,
but our chests all hold the same heart;
from our start to the end, if it continues, so do we.
It isn't easy to be something we weren't meant to,
hell bent on superiority, but we all fall in the minority -
the people left behind to struggle to find the true meaning.
Existence with resistance is not living,
it is giving us a false sense of power, and it will
devour our spirit. Not by bread or the thoughts in his head
does man live. It is in giving each other a fair shake
that we take the most from how we live. No intrusion;
no Grand Illusion. Only a "family" conjoined.
A Grand Infusion of life!

I would appreciate feedback on my work. If we don't learn, we'll never grow.
