Western society teaches us that if we have
emotions – we’re unstable.
I feel like we’re raised and taught to behave
like robotic parasites.
Our souls aren’t meant to be controlled –
for we are to take to the winds in flight.
They’ve created just about every medical term for all these
feelings that are hard to discern.
The pills they say that so much of our
population should take,
It’s all just a ploy to keep your soul hidden
Your mind they will dull-
Not worth putting your soul at stake.
Children being put on drugs before their minds
have a chance to develop.
Losing the intrinsic beauty of the soul’s relic.
The easier route is never the way to go,
masking your emotions-
Never letting anyone know.
Learn to express them in all you do,
others may not like it, but at least it’s released
Holding them in will cause an eruption,
eruptions always come with repercussions.
Don’t suffer the consequence of others
don’t hold onto their pain.
Focus on yourself and learn what you need –
So you can be more than sustained.
