There's joy in being oblivious.
Don't you think?
When you can't seem to stain your life with the ink
that swallows everyone.
Your deliriousness amazes many
And effects few.
There's fun in working hard.
Though it's forgotten.
The satisfaction that comes with knowing you've made something.
With your hands and your mind
And your soul.
There's pain in love,
However much ignored.
One day you will realize just how bad it hurt to love someone
All these things are true,
The sound of trust wringing through them
As I take the concepts you thought you knew everything about
And change them
And morph them into something new.
You can't keep living not knowing,
And I'm sorry and I wish I wasn't the one who had to show you
But these are things you must learn
And things you must hear
And things you must see, Because these do not just go away.
These are the constants
These are what rule my life and change my thoughts
And own me,
And will Always own me.
And have Always owned me.
One day you will have to flip the Switch
From being a child,
From not accepting that there is
work and pain and stupidity
In This World.
You will need to flip the Switch.
And accept that there are things you do not know
Things you will not learn
But you will learn to fight.
Fight for all of that information
Fight until it kills you,
Because you are no Waiter
And you will not concede for second place
You will realize the If's
You will conquer the Never's
You will embrace the And's
You will speculate the Or's
You will eradicate the Can't's
You will do so much my darling,
Even when you flip the Switch,
You will need to know and how I wish you could stay this way forever
The Switch isn't as bad as it seems
Look at your Mama.
Look at me
