As if my brain has shut off.

I’m never certain
often feeling out
as if my brain
has shut off the part
that relates to everyone else.

A quick click
a face pops up
a few lines about parenting
about the dos and don’ts
and it all feels off
far from a place I can attach.

Schools don’t foster potential
or bring about a sense of security
brick and mortar
covered in red
victims turn into bullies
and bullies turn into victims
and I can’t feel a safety
in walls barricading children
within norms that cater to
pain
hatred
fear.

On one side you’re born hating
if not of hate
your born in fear
and either way
there is little growth
books being burned
ashes in the air
and difference
is similarity
because either way
we’re forcing ourselves
our lives
our happiness upon each other.

There is several ways to live
several ways to reach happiness
and more ways to find success
that doesn’t equate to money.

Thanks for reading.
