Arrow The expected spectators - January 10th 2010, 01:29 AM

THE EXPECTED SPECTATORS

My parents and teachers,
They’re all the same.
Looking at me,
Like my whole life’s a game.

Mom and Dad are on the prowl again,
Telling me the how again.
Do your homework and get a job,
Or you’ll wind up a lazy sob.

At school teachers toss out a grade,
Staring at the paper I’m so afraid.
Trying my hardest to succeed,
All the while knowing their doubting me.


Staring at these four walls again,
What is this whole world coming to?
Hearing all these voices in my head,
All of them telling me what to do.


At work my manager tells me,
That manual labor’s what I gotta do.
Get ahead and keep your head,
The whole world is watching you!

My peers all line up like a great parade,
Telling me to do this or I’ll never get laid.
Cast to the side like an outsider,
While life’s passing me by as I’m hidin’ here .

I’d like to say I seek comfort in the mirror,
But that wretched fool is telling me what to do.
Letting you know you’re in over your head,
I’ve just gotta go to bed!


Staring at these four walls again,
What is this whole world coming to?
Hearing all these voices in my head,
All of them telling me what to do.


Maybe tomorrow will just be different...

Just like I said the other day.

Wow... this is great. I feel like I can relate to it even though I know you wrote it about yourself. I really like this though.


Forever in debt to your priceless advice

Thanks for the support, also to others who have scrolled through my posts and seen poems, scripts, and songs. Due to the positive reception I've got to the poems I've written and songs on here and elsewhere, I'm currently seeking out a band to join in LA as a songwriter. Thus, with all luck, it's another means in which I can reach out to a larger audience. I'm also in the process of writing a film for the son of an academy award winner that I have a lot of faith in and putting the finishing touches on now as well. Then there's WB contacts I'm building - so, within a matter of years I'll probably see something get picked up and start running.
