“Stop playing with your food you thwart”
My ears ring as she speaks
A wishful thought fills my mind
If only I could block out everything she saysMy head would be a better place.
Why should I eat bread as stale as this?
One that looks like it was made without yeast.
Why should I drink a cloudy tea?
One that looks like it lacks rich milk.
My life as an orphan goes without saying
It’s a paradise for the hopeless but it’s not mine.
I seek more from life than I’ve been given
But I fear I will not be able to fit in.
A larger world presents itself out there
Waiting for me to build up my courage.
I am but a mere sixteen year old,
In two years’ time, I will be able to walk out.
Out there lies my freedom
Out there is where my life shall begin.
You Must Do the Things You Think You Cannot Do
