Off You Trot

Skipping to and fro…then, pinned to the spot
What have I done to cause you so much pain?
You’re whispering like the sinuous wind…engraved with naught,
But unreliable shame and infinite sadness  

I feel the need to overcome the weight of this world 
Step aside and let me glide merrily in the sky…

What have I done? 
Have I stolen your hope and happiness?

Benevolence is the mask you wear
Malevolence is barreling in and out of your heart…
Why do you make me feed off your despair?
Why do you watch me with those vulture eyes of yours? 

I feel the need to overcome the weight of this world 
Step aside and let me soar without a care in the world…

Are you waiting to get a piece of me?
Are you trying to snatch away my symphony? 
 Why do you want me to look like the fool?
How can you intimidate me? Why do you screw me up, you sadistic tool?

I feel the need to overcome the weight of this world 
Step aside and save me from the predators, weighing me down

Where do I belong in your heart of stone? 
Are you still clothed in distress? 

You’ve wasted valuable time
Off you go! Off you trot!
Time is flipping like a dime
Leave or you’ll eternally rot…you’ll lose all of your progress…

    Say no to the damn vultures. This writing was fierce! I'm all for that. Excellent job!
