I will not entertain your game
Where can I direct my energy?
Is this article worth continuing?
I should probably delete this and head to a different one that needs writing
I will not act how you want me to act
It is a threat to my process
I will maintain my silence!
I don’t know if it’s complacency!
I’m wrong in a million ways!
But until I can prove that you aren’t
I will walk my path!
Let me have my mistakes and my shame
Let me trod with my shoulders in my knees
trampling my heart under every step
it has ants all over it
watching ants tear away small bits at a time until they’ve devoured your vitalest flesh upon the ground
step on it
hearts reemerge up from the dirt for every step
the game continues
the ants decrescendo
Pain’s preferable to defeat
I’ll eat the grass
where my heart was
chew my dirt
cause I don’t know what’s real
