What if, you don’t want a show?
You have displayed yourself
for far too long
so that, any intermission
is more pleasurable
than the entertainment you pay for
“Why do you walk out?” They ask.
I never walk in, if I can help it.
I am my own entertainment
my own emotions
Nobody can make me feel, a certain way, without my permission
and their lack of control, makes them hate me
because my indifference, is sincere
“I just want to be left alone.”
And the girls sit next to me in church
And the boss wants me to problem-solve with a coworker
And their Egos get offended by my dreams
for what I do.
And they want what I have, so they call me “selfish”
And they can’t compete for it
because what I have, must be found-out
My ambition doesn’t know what to do
because, now, it takes a backseat
to my other values
Solitude equals Survival
A long bike-ride through the forest
I’m lighter, every day, I’m alone
because I’m not carrying anyone’s baggage
but my own.
There’s a cost for entertainment, and being entertained.
A simple life makes PROBLEMS obvious
You never ask, “Is it me?”
You can’t walk away from everyone,” they say.
But I won’t have to
If you’re patient, you’ll find an enlightened soul
You don’t need company
You need to get rid-of your needs
stop seeing perfect people
and ask difficult questions
wait for their criticism and dishonesty
You don’t need
into their show.
