Everybody needs an obsession,
It's what gives us something to live for.
Some find it in religion,
putting all their faith within it,
others have sports,
putting all their effort forward.
There are those that write,
stories and Characters becoming messengers.
Those that protest for all our rights,
finding peace in thinking that they are helping the world.
We can see around us,
those that obsess over what most think obscene,
and those that are obsessed about finding true love.
We have those that draw,
their passion spread across the page,
There are people who find solace,
in leading others to a goal.
Added to that we have those that present,
whatever they might choose to press upon themselves to invent.
Human nature pushes us to be obsessed,
but when we lost that....
We slowly lose composure,
We slowly lose Ourselves.
- Title: We Lose
- Artist: camoire
- Description: This poem talks about why we tend to have some kind of obsession or something that we are passionate about, and how, without some kind of obsession, we would die or come close to dying. In the poem the word ourselves is capitalized in the last line, because we are always told in school that when we capitalize things, they are important. One point in the poem is to say how important we are to ourselves almost, because of how we obsess over things.
