That's All - Poem by Nelson Torres
Why do you believe it's only for specific people,
I know how to walk on water without making a ripple.
Haven't you ever felt the feeling of being left out?
Because, just to let you know, I'm about to drown from the drought,
Everyone's so far away in my eyes
And I get lonely too...
Stop saying your words when you know they're going to hurt,
You must really like pushing people in your own dirt.
You say I'm a sin yet you're such a flirt, practicing premarital sex I see?
Thanks for leaving the ones you're afraid of out the picture,
Never knew it could cause such a big rip.
The grip I thought I had,
When I didn't even know, deep down inside, we're all sad.
Stop saying she's special when we're all the same,
You just found someone you can claim, that's all.
