Andrew Hoffman


I'm not as gullible as you suspect in me
Scars from past is all the proof you need
Most of us are like the liquid in the drink
We're sucked thru a straw before we even think
Transforms us into something we didn't expect
Conscripted into so much to a point of which we can't flex
I wish you could see, see like me
Instead you're suduced into them to where you can't flee
Now we connect to our minds very seldom
I, unlike you, have seen them and felt them

Just another soul lost in the wild
Loves all gone nothin left to see
The fish in the sea are dead by the tidal
My soul is tampered so i just want to scream

Help me stop the unimaginable bleeding
Sufficates me, I'm just asking you to feed me!
We are slaves, our minds are thin
My life for you're life is to much to spend
We're provided our fate, then taught to hate
Then we're forced to take and to tolerate
We're presented with gifts and a promised future
Then discriminated and enrolled into torture
It will never change, It will always be pain
I guess we will always remain insane

    A good write with strong emotions infused with a feeling of being used, baited and promised and then betrayed. Keep up the good. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future.
