All these puppets wear bright smiles
While I let my mouth form a frown
They stare in wonder at the sky
As I feel my gaze drifting down
Iโ€™m told to stand and dance with them
But I am content on the ground
Sinking deep into the cobalt sea
Iโ€™d rather breathe it in, and drown
Itโ€™s much more comforting to sit alone and cry, than give in to societyโ€™s expectations and lies.
