The Tragedy of Heisenberg (A "Breaking Bad" Inspired Poem)

(Inspired song)

In a world full of fear,

Where danger lies there and here,

Such things makes a man's fate,

Blue and crystal clear.

In the absence of true affection,

By your fellow society,

A man may want to prove wrong,

Their blind reality.

To prove his inner worth,

Outside of family, there is the world,

The pure becomes corrupt,

Turned a wolf in sheep's cloth,

In the absence of true love,

Where transactional's the just,

Adjust to it, the man must.

Perhaps only then,

His worth will be proven,

To any human out of the self.

Laughed at disgracefully,

Carelessly been assigned irrelevancy,

One's worth is to be attained,

Or else he will be in vain.

So when you are unloved,

You would want others to say your name,

You will become like them,

You will want antagonism dead!

You will be embedded with fear,

For purity in this world,

Is never here.

You will turn from crystal white,

To Heisenberg, a facade of might.

You say you do it for others,

While they say they never wanted that light.

Even when your worth is suggested,

Your worth isn't really wanted.

Because they want to feel nice,

Drink orange juice with ice.

Dark coffee's too dark,

But it's part of reality,

Its mark.

And the cycle will repeat,

In the name of impurity,

Round and round goes the corruption in humanity,

As true love belongs only to whom fear,

As breakfest they eat.

Because love is rarely given,

But love is sought to be gained.

You might realize nobody of you, truly cares,

So your true self, express it you dare.


You now wear a fedora-crown on your head,

An expanding empire of demand is now in your stead.

For Heisenberg isn't one to be praised,

For Heisenberg is a warning to be seen and hailed.

Without real love your heart grows dark,

Become remorseless as a warlord and as a loan shark.

Because in the end you might as well just want it for yourself,

So now you're powerful,

Respected, but still unloved.

No amount of honor will have your heart unlocked!

You may mistake loyalists for true love,

But in truth its but a roadblock!
