I’m told I should chase my dreams,
That I’d be happier that way.
They’ve never left my head,
I cling to them like caffeine,
And yet they lead me astray.
Which ones do I chase? Each one is a book in a library that hasn’t been sorted and never go further than 100 pages.
They mock me with or without blood.
I’ve made so many mistakes.
Half of my memories are regret,
The other half is what could have been.
This rope I’ve been traversing
Was once a wide plank.
The safety net is shrouded in fog,
As well as my destination.
For once, I am powerless,
I have no control over my fate,
And I don’t know how to fix this mess I’ve made.
The only thing I never understood about humanity
Is our cruelty and brutality towards each other.
We create problems where there shouldn't be any
Because that actor is black, ***, trans, etc.
Playing a role that was originally white.
They made a problem as though
Skin color actually matters in a children's story,
As though its okay to dehumanize
Based on such petty things alone.
We don't get to choose skin color.
We don't get to choose orientation.
We don't choose the conditions of our existence,
And they don't determine our worth.
I don't understand why we can't just love and help each other. Perhaps its for greed, fear, or attention?
Going home seems like a mere dream.
This headache hasn’t let up in ages.
The radio is half static and half old music.
Only three hours left to go until vacation.
At least we get air conditioning.
There's no such thing.
Even if we had no laws,
We'd still be under the dogma of society,
And without society
We'd still be limited by our core needs.
Such limits don't exist in our imaginations,
Yet people wonder why I often drift off into space.
Time doesn't exist there,
There's no rules to break,
No condescending eyes to judge,
Or narcissistic mouths to boast.
What's not to love?
Is that what you call everyone
Who doesn’t care for motorsports
Smalltalk, alcohol or bonfires?
When was the last time
You’ve read a book?
Is it right for me to call you stupid
Based on the disrespect you’ve shown me?
Honestly, all you do after work
Is watch tv and get high,
Yet I’m the lazy one?
