Wall flower
Blended in with the wallpaper
Sitting round the edges

Trying to be unseen

Don’t make a scene
Stay out of it
Trying to make it through the current of life
Without being drowned in it

Don’t go out
Don’t stay close
The wonderful world
From the outside perspective

Useless excuses
Just used in
An unexpected situation
Making unreal creations

Spin webs out of thin air
But they don’t care
Doesn’t matter where
You’ll never fit in there

Don’t go out
Don’t stay close
The wonderful world
From the outside perspective

Rue the day
When they go away
Escape the hustling
And bustling
And just
Sit
S T I L L

Don’t go out
Don’t stay close
The wonderful world
From the outside perspective

Keep the kindness
Escape the binds of
Society and
The outside perspective
