On the inside they are rotting away.
On the outside they are wealthy,
Inside they are poor, wretched & full of misery.
On the outside they are successful,
Inside they are purposeless, lost, drifting aimlessly.
On the outside they are strong,
Inside they are weak, worn & weary.
On the outside they gain all the world,
But inside they have lost their very soul.
When all is said and done,
Now who am I and what are you?
