Don't waste my time
each millisecond I won't be able to buy into existence
I cannot undo conversations
I can't take back the things I've said.
Each millisecond it takes to breathe
life into your words-
I've faded away.
I've lost time.
Each millisecond it takes to tell a lie
to save my feelings-
I don't need it.
I've spent too much of my own generation
I've wasted too much of
my own time.
And for what?
My patience with the world has worn
The fibers of my 17 years is ripping
the stitches are popping.
The thread is stripped
Now they have me thinking I need medication because
Only a decade of breath in
Yet here I am concerned if the time
of my children's future is secure.
Every millisecond I spend entertaining your
time I spend killing the hope of this nation.
