I’m just trying to survive in Earth.
In the Earth I was born in.
In the Earth you were born.
In which we were all born.
And it just looks so simple,
one person born between millions which already did.
Not knowing life sucks
not knowing it just get worst.
And is not their fault.
And it’ll always be...
People bang on the windows of the monkey’s glass cage,
They’re hoping to scare it.
They think it’s funny to watch something innocent
scared out of its mind
then again, why do people watch horror movies.
People bang on the windows of the monkeys glass cage,
And watch it run around.
It yells, pleading for the people
“make it stop, make it stop.”
But the monkey can’t speak,
So the people just laugh.
The monkey runs towards them with a look of anger in its eyes
A look of rage.
It bangs back on the window.
The people laugh still.
They laugh as though being trapped in a dungeon is a joke.
Then the zoo closes and the people go home.
The monkey goes to bed.
But the monkey knows it will happen again the next day,
and the monkey has to live with that because no one hears it when it asks:
"cant you just suck it up?"
my father asks me.
"maybe you need to be tougher,"
my therapist tells me.
"why do you let it all get to you?"
my best friend questions me.
"just let it roll off your back,"
my mother instructs me.
"what is wrong with you?"
my mind wonders.
we live in a world where we are trained
to be defensive around others,
maybe instead of preparing for the cruelty of the world,
we can put down our weapons and
try to change the perspective
by turning the angry words into
hands to shake.
We all are connected by others,
Were always thinking of those that
we haven't spoken to in a while,
and we think!
But when that moment has passed
and there words are but echoes,
carry on through the people they knew..
always will we remember them
for there words to us,
and the laughter that resonates through
our reflections of them.
I am your puppet.
You pull my strings.
Make me dance,
for it's you I please.
I am your puppet.
Thing is, I'm not.
You treat me like a toy
and it needs to stop.
You act like I'm on the bottom
and you're at the top.
I am not your puppet,
I am not your game.
You will not play with me today.
