Release

by Lilitu Barrmaratu

Release the strings that have been attached.
Quit searching for answers from the detached faces.
They’re leading you down a path
And don’t even know the places.
Looks more like a book of mazes.
Replaced education with the latest crazes and trends.
Losing the ability to pick up a pen.
Get to your Zen
by questioning organized religion.
Put your phone down and we wouldn’t have
such a cancerous condition.
You don’t need medication for your depression.
The suicidal thoughts are caused by your suppression.
There’s a different way to show some expression.
Replace those feelings with some aggression.
Don’t just swallow these words, taste it.
Quit waiting for your time, take it.
And if you’ve got no reason to smile, fake it.
