I am sitting here
On this big, chocolate, marshmallow
Which often cradles me to sleep,
On this sunny Thursday morning,
Enjoying the warmth of the sun’s rays,
Reaching my cold feet.
The bright sunshine is deceiving
Because the wind outside is cold.
I wear layers of protection
So that the cold can’t reach my innermost core.
But the wind is sharp and strong…
It seems to find a way
To reach me,
No matter how heavy-duty the gear I wear is.
I hate this cold,
Although from the side of the window I look out from,
It doesn’t look cold at all.
Well, maybe it does
But I just can’t see it
Because the sun captures me and warms my cold feet
So I can’t see it’s deception
Because it’s SUCH a great deceit!
And here is where I ask –
Why didn’t anyone on the outside warn me or tell me?!
Shouldn’t it be our social responsibility,
To warn another human being
About what outside holds for her?
The weather man and the news lie,
And on you she relies
But you stay quiet like you know nothing
And have nothing to say…
But as soon as she steps outside
She sees your face
And your eyes shoot out bolts of fear.
Yeah you’re scared!
Not of her ‘cuz she won’t do anything
To hurt you
But you’re afraid to speak up
And tell her the truth
‘Cuz the sun is much bigger than you
But you forget –
On the inside,
It’s burning up and slowly dying….
Just like you.
Yet again I encourage you
To face your fear –
SPEAK UP AND TELL THE TRUTH!
