To Be In And Look At

Too high to get over

numbing the pain

with the kush that

makes me feel

I’m in the clouds

not very proud

of depending on intoxication

that allows me the creation

of a world that’s beautiful

to be in and look at

Too low to get under

succumbing to fear

of everything

crippling myself

I wanna be six feet deep

endless sleep

ashamed I have that thought

that is so negatively brought

by a world that’s disappointing

to be in and look at

Stuck in the middle

consciously confused

with my surroundings

emotions everywhere

I wanna breed change

my voice is strained

from yelling for peace

but it seems the hate won’t cease

in a world thats callous

to be in and look at
