At The Clinic

You have to understand
you have to understand but you can’t understand
you don’t have the capacity to understand
because you’re not old to enough to understand
you haven’t grown yet, you will never grow
you will never understand
you will never be, because you can’t be
it isn’t fair, you wouldn’t like it here
you won’t be able to like it here
because I won’t let you, I won’t let you come here
you aren’t coming here, you have to understand
you have to understand why you won’t like it here
why it isn’t good for you, because it won’t be good for you
it won’t be healthy for you, and you will never grow up right
because you won’t grow up at all
because you can’t grow up here because it isn’t the right time
it’s not the right time for you to be here
so you just won’t be.
