Life is hell
In a way comparable
To if there came
An apocalypse

And what is known best in this time,
But such the possibility
That zombies could someday walk our paths

But has this apocalypse yet occurred?

Daily, 'people' muddle through
Following routines
They've created for themselves

Sleepless, they walk
Feeling as though they take this action
Without a shred of meaning

The apocalypse is slowly taking it's toll...

We are living a hell
That is comparable to
An apocalypse
We are already living

But if in that apocalypse,
Zombies are the ones that rise,
Then is that what we are?

We are no longer human,
But aimless walkers of the Earth?

But even zombies -
Once upon a time
Before their idiomatic death,
They were once human

So, here we walk
In this imaginary apocalypse
As we continue on
Unable to see the purpose
That lies in front
Of our hungry hands

On the inside,
We are dead zombies
But on the outside...

The outside bears
The next generation's chance
To fix these current mistakes
And learn to live
And teach the zombies
What it's like to be human again

Even if life is a hell
That has become an apocalypse -
We are still human,
Just living in Hell
Inspired by the "Rot & Ruin" or "Benny Imura" series by Jonathan Maberry. Still on the last book, halfway through, but I was thinking about the first book and the way Tom tells Benny about zombies once being human...

It's a wonderful book series though - I strongly suggest reading it. It's quite epic.

i have come to the conclusion that human beings can be very complex and very fascinating.  what ever situation we are in, we tend to act like so, even if it may seem like a horrible zombie.

this is wonderful! i like it, this is just how it is today.

True point, even our ritual routines are something that can hint at other interesting qualities residing within our brains.

I feel like the routines, the habbits are what turns us into undead creatures. It's like we do things out of habbit and we can't break it. It's a numbness that overcomes our minds and renders us empty...

That it all is - it's simply going against the zombified humanity and taking a step outside of routine. Live. But nobody wants to do that, because life to most people is just education, work, die.

True. Instead of living, we are just surviving. And that shouldn't be enough.

I've had that thought cross my mind as well - as well as joke-agreeing with friends calling highschool a zombie apocalypse. XD
