Crazy.I.Am - Poem by Amanda Saveley

Yes, I am THAT kid...
The crazy kid...
The kid who says whatever they want
Without thought to anyone
Get in my way,
I'll spit on your shoe!
There's nothing I care about when it comes to you...
Or is there?
Because behind every person there is a soul
And some of us are leaders,
And some of us are lost
I'm a lost leader!
Leading others into lost with me,
Like getting lost is the new trend
Don't know who you are?
No ambition?
That's cool.

Because that seems to be the 'in' thing these days...
Getting lost...
It's cool
Cool to be stupid, cool to be confused,
Cool to look to something outside yourself
Something else to abuse
Something to set. you. straight.
To make your head EXPLODE!

Cause that's what it's all about.
Making the next big bang
Without no one seeing it
Then crying how no one notices you
You know what you do then?
Ask for a pill
Go ahead.
They're everywhere!
You can't stop in the street
Without a pill beneath your feet
Or a heart that doesn't beat
With a medicated meat

So desert your dreams
Let go of ambition
To become lost and crazy
Is today's only mission

    I am absolutely amazed.
    I think poems are a lot about the last scentence, and this one just described the entire emotion that wopuld take me pages to even get close to.

    But i think you've got it all wrong! You don't have to imitate these crazy.they.are.people....and how can you give up your ambition? I agree with Nalini, don't ever do that! (Report) Reply
