Reasons For Isolation

-

So incompetent

Can't do anything my own damned self

Can't find any one on my own

To fuck nor to hold

Can't make my own money

To spend nor to save

Can't bust a nut on my own

To cleanse and release

Can't even pray on my own

So how can God help me?

I'm starving for love

Too poor to enjoy the last 3 and a half weeks

__of any given month

Full of too much pride

__to jack off

And way too unorthodox

__to pray to God on my own

My complaint is with the world

Not getting my girl for me

But I guess that's all I can complain about

Thee only thing that makes me

__less of a man

And a target for who ever

__just wants to clean this planet

Why must I continue to live

__being a target?

I'm getting sick of having to depend

__on other people

But what makes any one else any different?

They have to depend on other people

__to keep their jobs

They have to depend on their wives

__to keep loving them

They have to depend on too many people

__for just both of those things

Which means they have to control

__and manipulate the world

____for the rest of their lives

Which makes it all impossible

__for me to measure up to them all

I'll always be less than them

But I'm not gonna let that get to me

They wanna kill me? well, so what?

I have a right to live and breathe

Even if I can't be aloud

__to walk among them

To fuck among them

Nor to pray among them

So they can all eat shit

And suck my dick

Even though I know they won't

Even though I know they'd rather

__see me choke on my own freedom

Well, guess what? I am choking

I live with the guilt

__of not growing up

____just like ev'rybody else

______to handle my own shit

________myself

But it doesn't change me

I'm still the piece of shit

__the world sees me as

Being passed up on the race of life

Forced to tell the world "goodbye"

And go on about my life
