Spinning

The earth keeps spinning
And I’m here sitting
Not yet quitting
But not quite living

I feel stuck
Almost like
I’m frozen
In time
Searching for a sign
To let me know I’m alive
Dying to survive
Dying to die
It isn’t the same when you see it through my eyes

And all I want to do is satisfy
To let them know
I ain’t living no lie
“I’m going to be something!”
I scream
But their looks of disappointment
Conceive
A future paved with endless days
Of office work and little pay
But I won’t settle for a life
Filled with bored
No open doors
These are the wars
For a girl or boy
Who crave fame over friendship
Cameras over candy
It’s a life of insanity
One - no man should see
But that’s me you see
A little girl who just wants to be free
From this world of confinement
To a place where words run free

I’m going to be what I’m going to be
Despite what any of you think of me
