If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a million times,
But you just can’t understand this desire in me to…die
“You’ve got so much ahead of you! Your whoever will miss you”
We all miss something once we lose it. But while it’s here we continue to take it for granted. Like I take things for granted. Like people take me for granted. And I’m just tired of the whole charade. Tired of pretending like everything is damn okay when it’s not!
I’ve spent so much of my time trying to figure out ways to make it ok for everyone else
But I can’t get the same in return
I barely get a hug, a warm smile, a hello
Just kicked to the curb like a old, disabled dog you know?
And I’m so damn tired of this same old shit
How many years am I sentenced to LIVE LIKE THIS!?
Just can’t think straight, I’m forever full of fury and rage
And it gets tougher and tougher to fight this til my nice nature feels staged
I have no peace! I have no idea where it’s gone
But I damn sure it’s never returning back home
I’m a ticking time bomb ready to explode
I’m sure the earth is full to capacity, so I’m ok to go
The world is crumbling anyway, I can see it’s pretty much doomed
Or maybe I’m just looking through these foggy glasses of gloom
But despite what they tell you, it’s not okay to be yourself
It’s not okay to be who you are if who you are isn’t everyone else
You get penalized for your freedom, for your individual zest
You get hyped up with gas and then they discard you like the rest
People don’t be fooled, like I, realize you are still beautiful indeed
But if you’re trying to be anything more than a robot, I promise you will not succeed
Your dreams will forever be on hold in an indefinite que
And everything else will always be more important than you
Trust me when I say, they will treat you any kind of way
They will push you to the edge of your limits and try to lead you astray
But if you fight back, with intensity in your strength
You’ve almost certainly put yourself on the blacklist
I guarantee it’s over for free spirits and free minds
I’d like to think it was possible… but I guess now is not the time.
And I’m done.
ETA: I found an article that made me laugh myself right out of my depression. If you need a heavily sarcastic pick me up, PLEASE read this article. You’re worth every bit of effort and don’t let anyone take that from you 🙂
