Empty Tears
countless fears
I haven’t felt this way for many years
Suddenly, I’m enveloped in a curtain of uncertainties
All these things are new to me

Adjust! Adjust!

No time to stop
You have to keep up with times
no time for rhymes
explaining your fears
shifting gears
changing your ways
head towards better days
into happiness

cannot stop and feel the breeze on your face

Adjust! Adjust!

Into this new era
Time is essential
Thinking is unnecissary
Words you hear are choosen carefully
planted into your mind
so you can save time
from being an individual

Dont have to worry
they’ll choose and pick my emotions for me
Dont fret
we’re in good hands

Hands never felt
never seen, never held

But they support us

Dont want to?
Tough luck.

Adjust! Adjust!

And while you’re at it
pick up a bag of sympathy
and sieze the moment
cradle it
contain it
keep it in your heart
and maybe when you truly understand
the meaning of why we’re on this land
You can adjust
and be free
from all uncertanties

Artist's Description

I wrote this poem because of several reasons. It kind of shows how I feel we all never have time to slow down in life, but the overall message is to promote individuality…
