Four Walls

May 19, 2009
The four walls.
Enclose us from the world.
Can’t be that straight line.
Because they want you curled.

Speak out!
Like to think I try
No! Speak in
Closed down my thoughts

Why walk?
When you can run.
Stop the clock
They said your done.

Listen to them.
When spoken to.
Nod quietly.
Do what they want you to do

I can’t take it..
Watch the rest fake it.
Don’t think I’m going to make it..
The four walls.

Nice idea. The rhythm was a bit too awkward for my taste, though.
