They hand you the world and say

Do it right and all the pain will go away

It’s the destination they want to see

Meanwhile you don’t know where home should be

In your heart the truth vibrates like hornets in the nest

Run faster they say, always be the best

       –

When you’re small the world is so tall

The system is what you choose to see

Do it right and all the pain will go away

Perfect Robot; It’s the person we all pretend to be

Which poison will finally set you free?

    –

I thought I saw the world; couple countries, an island or two

To a young girl a promise is a dangerous thing.

They told me I could be whatever I wanted.

They told me to believe in what was true.

Fields dressed in sunflowers I thought the world must make sense. The beautiful design of photosynthesis penetrated via osmosis, as I felt like mosses, parting the sea. See. To see. Do you see me? Can you see what I see? Soil that gives life, and your void that drains it away

They hand you the world and say

Do it right and the pain will go away

Sit pretty, act tough; be like me

If only your ways filled my empty hole like the right key

I see your words as they leave your mouth, dripping with lies, with intention, mental

invasion, attempted incarceration, cocky with the notion that you can affect me. Me.

This woman I’ve grown to be. Hold me down? You’ve got to be kidding me.

Do it their way and the pain will stay

Experience will teach you what they failed to decree

There is no winner, only losers, so fuck you for messing with me

The mirror tells my story, comprehensible only if you truly see; The stripes of a tiger

who won the battle but is still at war.

Want to tell me who to be, what to eat, how to sit, when to laugh, how deep I’m allowed to breathe.

You choke me as you rape me from behind while pretending this is love.

My eyes widen with shame and disbelief.

And only now can I see that your eyes are closed, and your fingers are crossed behind your back; your method to hide your lies.

They hand you the world and say

Do it right and all the pain will go away

It’s the destination they want to see

Meanwhile you don’t know where home should be

In your heart the truth vibrates like hornets in the nest

Run faster the fuckers lie; because there is no such thing as the best
