if you don't get into it, no one will


Wallflower, what are you doing?
Watching as time tics by
You sit and wait and never try
Do you care to live or die?
Your blank expression tells it all-
Nothing.

Wallflower, what are you doing?
Your thoughtless efforts to stay indifferent
Peaceful? No, not so.
Silence stabs creative minds
You stay- unknowingly cruel
While life around you undergoes discontent

Wallflower, what are you doing?
Perks must be high to go without a care
As love and hate and death
Controls those unable to accept your dare
So waste your time with an oh so
Relentless mind

Wallflower, do you know what your doing?
As resentment gains through
Wicked wishing eyes
Watching you, yourself, blankly
Sleep.
