Influences are powerful...

 

The classroom zooms in

One spot on my mind

I can see nothing

I hear every word

 

They drown me with them

The words they spit at me

Making me scream on the inside

Killing me from the inside out

 

They don’t see my pain

If they did, they would be in shame

Ashamed of murder, guilty of innocence

Even I don’t understand

 

I can’t say I hate them

They will be here too

I can’t say I love him

Because he makes them spit

 

I cannot take the voices

Maybe I should listen

To jump, like he wants

My head shall lie down

 

He and they want me here

I hear them both

He is they, they are he

Both torture me to death
