Living makes us
regretful,
Existing makes us
disappear,
Death is the end.
We live to die
so why even try?
I can't
sit
in a
room
filled with
people
talking over
one-another
without remaining
quiet
and observing
them;

I'm a
wallflower.
RENTAL - BROCKHAMPTON
It is only a rock
floating lifeless
around the earth;

cold and hard,

desolate and bare.

Yet,
with no fire of its own,
it outshines every star.
I do not have super strength
I can't run through fire
My heart is not made of stone
But, I do not break my rules...

The reason I am stronger.

i’ve lived for so long already
feels like i’m already dead
When I was small
I wrote a song.
It was as wild
As it was long.

I did not know
How to write words
And so I sang
With the morning birds.

Now I am grown,
I am depressed.
I write long things
Just to impress.

I do not sing,
I only sigh.
When I was small
I was alive.
I'm never sure, in doubt I must endure
