I’d Appreciate It

I promised that I would try to bring some positive vibes onto this screenshot of words to dignify this world that I find myself seeing; that I find myself weeping.

It was so senseless to drown in such extreme desperation seeking approval; convincing you that I didn’t lie in masks to shield your eyes from my pain.
I didn’t think it would suppress my dreams when I decided to stop speaking and instead echo the words that you say.
The shadows were cold. Actions were meek. Feeling empty and understated. Feeling useless. Unused.

A pen in my hand. Paper by the bench. I sign life as I see it, flamboyant and deep minded; destroyed and resurrected.
Why I once believed in unauthentic behaviours will remain a mystery; who twisted my focus to strive to achieve such artificial grades?
I feel guilty for preaching the wrong messages, campaigned for trash, cultivated my future to reap of proud successes not made to last.
Cover me with labels so my real name cannot be seen. Wrap me and bag these, let my money do it’s thing.

I’d appreciate it, if you could
give a buck to this man
He’s not begging but I see him struggling to feed his family, keep his land
I’d appreciate it, if you could
shine some light into her day
the pain of man providing empty love drained beauty out of this woman’s heart
I’d appreciate it, if you could
show the world the skills and talents you keep quiet
may it be one stick to feed hope’s fire, or foundation where a house can stand strong
music to ignite joys, dancing to awaken smiles
I’d appreciate it, if you could
turn around and help those being left behind
