Misguided

I been getting things wrong lately

Been wondering if this is still my ride

Have I done my part or is this my life

It’s getting hard to stand up tall

When I feel so exposed

Weakness is part of the enthrall

Feel so big and so tough after all

Feeling small and insignificant

A word I used to hate

Popped all over my face

We matter of course we do

Why do you need someone to tell it to you

Do you hang there on the sly

Does it even matter who walks by

Won’t be pushed like a ship to shore

It’s getting harder to ignore

Crust around the edges for sure

All slime and no grease

That stuff won’t mix with oil

We need to end the turmoil

Rub a dub dub hear the front of the truck

Vroom vroom vroom

Heavy metal on the speakers

Making it hard to hear you

So much noise I’m deaf and I’m blind

The smoke sets in

Black and foggy

Moving slowly

Creeping forward

Ready to swallow me whole

Trapped in an illusion

Ever after the carrot

Haven’t you heard the story

It’s been told over and over

We know the drill

Come on spill

I wanna hear what’s next

A lot of people seem to think they know it all

A lot more say they know the secrets

Who’s who and what’s what

But what’s hiding behind

It’s not the princess in the tower

She was merely a distraction

She has a phone to keep her occupied

And she likes to eat French fries

Carve the arteries

Give me the fat

Recycle it for some Botox

Put it right back in her lips

Make her look unkissable

Indismissable

Blurp blurp the big lips lie

All about how the devil wasn’t there

It was just a film

Just a song

Just a way to pass the time

It didn’t mean anything

Subliminal what

I don’t need an explanation

Turn the damn show back on

So where were we

That’s right

We were trapped in time

Reliving fear recycled with unfinished science

As long as we have toilet paper we’re ok

They will stand in line and say

To take the damn vaccine

Cos that’s what our employers said

Here we go again

Round 2

Even worse than before

But it’ll be ok right

The government never meant to harm us

My love for humanity, and for the planet, has set me on a path of healing through love, compassion, and understanding. I'm originally from a big city in the big state of Texas, making my personality quite large. I then landed in a small town that's out-of-puzzles gorgeous where people still wave at each other when coming across each other in the street. This transition has helped my development and tried relationships with distance and sacrifice. I have 2 beautiful boys, Silas and Declan, and their loving father, Curtis, who make my world go round. My political views all stem from wanting to protect this beauty in all its forms.
