Is he who lacks vision, drive and ambition
But prefers the imprisonment of tradition.
By bonds of monotonous life-draining labour
Yet unwilling to grasp any new opportunities.
By lack of passion, uninspired thinking, apathy;
Unfulfilled dreams, melancholia, self destruction.
Within the graveyard of the inward facing mind,
The constant complaining, yet unwillingness to change.
