My Quiet Child
Hello World, I am a quiet child.
I have been ignored for a while.
You gave me an electronic device.
You never thought about it twice.
As long as it kept me quiet
you felt that would justify it.
Yesterday I met a man who told me he is my biggest fan.
He told me things that made me feel like a man.
He even told me how to take a stand
for no real reason, just because I can.
Now that I am alone and confused
he told me how I’m ready to use.
He took me to a high place.
I felt like I was on top of the world.
That stuff he gave me put me in a swirl.
I knew that something was wrong
because in my head were the words of a song:
“If you ever want to fly
use some crack before you DIE!”
