I Don’t Want To
I don’t want to, not today! But you force me
Into your world and call it reality
I don’t want to have to pretend to be
Your normal, OK?
When every day
Those positive thinkers think positively
And they make me want to just groan
It doesn’t change a thing, at least not for me,
Denial never was my zone.
I don’t want to care today! Leave me alone!
Not that I want to strike an unfriendly tone,
I don’t even want to complain or moan,
Just don’t make me
I can visualize heaven and world peace,
If believing would bring seeing.
Also love and joy and an end to disease
When are those coming into being?
Call me selfish, I don’t want to care today,
I’m tired of pretending; I want things my way,
And if I can’t have what I want, I want to stay
In a safe place;
In a quiet space,
Like outer space.
Are you getting the wished feelings I’m sending?
I’m visualizing, praying, pretending
That this poem, right along with this feeling
