    Rags to Riches

    May 2, 2018

    Wearing clothes patterned with stitches

    Their face is marred just wanting to be the star

    of their own play

    driving a car on the road to success very far away.

    Trying to write their own story

    So they might, one day, not have to wear the cone of loneliness.

    But this young kid is still clueless. Because the higher you go

    The less you truly know.  

    Isolation grows like a weed

    Needing to feed on the only flower in the garden.

    You have been given the power of success

    This pressure can make you a mess

    Damocles wanted the power so bad

    Quickly realizing it was only a fad

    As that sword hangs over head

    It acts as a fang to the snake that might bite you

    Just fake it til’ you make it

    So no one fights you

    Everyone I thought would help… didn’t

    Sent me to a cave and gave me the bad yelp review

    I called them out

    They all peed their pants, then fleed the scene of a fiend

    Killed in a drug deal gone wrong.

    For I’m just a house mouse, in the barrel of cream

    If I can just grow a pair there will be one less Rags to Riches story to spare.
