It’s everywhere
It’s here and there
There is never silence
It’s the worst violence
It’s the darkest rage
It keeps me caged
I spend sleepless nights
And later on I pay the price
My mind cannot be quiet
It’s not a phone so I can’t put it on silent
Sometimes it’s best to remain wordless
It can help eliminate one more stress
Let me live the way I wish to live
Stop telling me to stop acting like this
I’ll try to talk from time to time
Be patient and I’ll get comfortable by and by
