Happy People

I opened my eyes on an ordinary day
I paused my career as a runaway
And I saw - Happy People
Happy People pushing others out
Happy People pulling others in
Happy People painting others fat
Happy People sketching others thin
Happy People
Stealing other people's happiness
Because they can never have enough
Happy People making me put myself
in handcuffs
"To make me tough"
It's never going to be enough
Happy People wearing me down to the bone
Happy People just won't leave me alone
Happy People hurting people
Just because they can
Happy People crushing people
That is why I ran -
Away - Happy People driving me mad
Dear Happy People everywhere
I can't wait to see you sad.
