Parents to take our responsibility Siblings to carry our roller-coaster emotions Friends to co-create the madness we are Relatives to form our extended safety networks Spouse to satiate our mental, physical and lonely desires Kids to give us those safe & positive vibes for future Influentials and celebrations to realize our existence
But how about having one nameless relation? One that doesn't mandate responsibilities? One that doesn't burden expectations? One that is Fearless, Formless & Weightless? One that is 'Carelessly Caring' ?
I don’t know what I’m looking for But I’m looking for something And I keep ending up back at “Everything is nothing” Which means that nothing is something And the thoughts refuse to stop coming I know there’s no running
I cant escape being in this ring Forever feeling like every direction is a haphazard swing I can’t see a thing Feeling like society’s puppet on a string There’s a list I keep, sorta sloppy neat But God tells me, “take a seat” I yell back, “that’s no easy feat”
I don’t understand what all of this is for Life feels like a game, except I can’t score I can’t open the ****** door They wanna say, “when life closes a door, it opens a window” But all I see is a **** show That’s not to say, I don’t see the beauty in how a river flows That’s not to say, I don’t see the beauty in how the same river froze You can tell me I’m dramatic, that I wallow in my throes And yeah Lil *** told me, “that’s the way life goes” But I’m fed up with everyone’s prose I don’t want to believe that’s really how it goes
And so I sit with Robert Frost At his two roads, curious at how he tells me he’s actually not lost How it’s not left to the probability of a coin toss That everyone just wants to be their own boss Pretending that they aren’t nailed to their own cross
I don’t know what I’m looking for But I think maybe I’ve been playing the game wrong That there is no score which could lead to more All I’ve got is a case of nothing being something And that’s really nothing more Than “everything is nothing” for sure.
