Chipping Into Madness

I’m slowly chipping away at the madness
Panics in the twilight with silence loud as riots
There’s smiling on my face but my head is filled with sadness
I thought he had a hand but it turns out he is spineless

I start out each day as if I’m facing Goliath
At any moment I am ready to face violence
Though humble are my feet when they are sleeping quiet
When you hear me roar you’ll learn I am a lioness

We need entire continents to separate my rage
And I don’t give a fuck if you think I act my age
Make a note on your calendar or erase the fucking page
It doesn’t change the fact we deserve a decent wage

Starving for food and love during a year long plague
I’m fairly fucking certain I’ve been yelling from my cage
But to the world full of green it’s a giant fucking stage
And they don’t ever hear a word I fucking say!!!!!

I don’t want your support if it costs me my peace of mind. I’d rather starve. Or die in the street like Poe which is exactly where I’m heading if I don’t learn to LET IT GO.

I SEE THROUGH MONEY TO SEE YOU EMPTY AND WANTON AND NEVER HAVING MY FRIENDSHIP, LOVE, OR RESPECT. YOU CAN’T BUY THAT. YOU CAN’T BUY ME. IT’LL BOTHER YOU ONE DAY. BUT I’M ALREADY GONE. 👍

  1. Awesome post, everything you say is full of truth and honesty in its rawest sense, which is the best way. Why is there such inequality? because the rich create and sustain it. Fuck the rich, eat the rich. 🙏Faux
