Yeah you with the whip, stick and carrot
You doing your uttermost to manipulate and control
You’ve spent so much on the above that you’ve exhausted Yourself AND others too
You’ve drained radiance out of life and left it all black and blue
Your attempts at control haven’t amounted to much either
People were never made to be controlled
The standards you demand they meet up to is not present in their core
And when they “fail” again and again, Your whip cracks:
“Why can’t you just behave?!”
“You are so stupid!”
“You’re such a disappointment!”
“I expected more from you!”
But You have failed to notice some things though
That You have charge over only one person i.e. You
That no one else is responsible for your inner space but You
You have expected (and demanded) that others fix it up and keep it tidy for You
And in affection with a big helping of ignorance they labor and labor and “fail You”
And with each “disappointment” anger, angst and cynicism multiplies in You
Ad you consider everyone a massive fail with the exception of course being You
Isn’t it about time You take responsibility for You?
Isn’t it high time You go within and put Your house in an order that is pleasing to You?
Isn’t it about time You face those dark corners and open those doors labeled “NO ENTRY” by You?
Isn’t it about time You grow up?
