A Mindless Poem

Bright blue skies
Flawless weather
Happy friends
And god given life

Have everything id ever need
It's the perfect life.
Have a lot going on
Like picking up a knife?

Don't like being sad.
Don't like being happy.
Don't like feel anything at all

Wish I could live with no emotion
Have the art of masking myself
Even on those days
When it's just not enough

Think it's selfish to just want more
My life's not that bad
When I actually think
So I brush it off and put on a smile

Not feeling or caring is how it should be
Even though I have so much going on for me
Or that's what people say
Is it lie?
Too really keep me from slipping by

Don't like being sad.
Don't like being happy.
Don't like feel anything at all
Cos it's easier like that
