By D.H.

Being confined with the same address all the time

6oz juices and the side orders are slime

I’m discourage from coming out and succeeding

Most of the time, feel like my heart’s bleeding

Leaving is an intriguing idea I have

Because staying is like catching a right jab

You’re knocked out and locked out of society

Certainly have talents, an extensive variety

Everyday you’re collective and cool as a TomCat

The primary goal is successfully coming out of combat

It’s a fight and struggle in a way

Because good news can complicate your day
