The rat race

We wear other people's clothes,
Pretend to be each others' kin,
Brother from another mother,
Sisters even though we,
Can't even begin,
To understand our thoughts,
Nothing beneath the surface,
Yet always, always,
Getting under each others' skin,
Letting random strangers in,
Swimming in the news and trends,
Nothing seems to remain evergreen,
The nights are brighter than they used to be,
Daylight clearer than it was made to seem,
And we're all running the rat race,
But nobody will ever win.
