Society Is Bringing Me Under Pressure

A table with books of poetry for sale.

Why does life have to get me down,

When everyone is mocking me and they don't care who I am?

Why do they say the things that they do?

Am I just a hopeless person made into a woman or just a useless fan?

Is this called being "under pressure" where my life entails,

I just want to be left alone.

Don't these people get it that I'm ok just the way I write?

I'm not waiting for you by my phone.

They want me to do drugs, they want me to get a drink,

Some even want me to buy them smokes.

I don't understand all the pressures of society,

I want them to stop staring at me with their stupid jokes.

I'm under pressure with all these thoughts that they bring,

I don't want to know these people anymore.

Can't they just go away and leave me be just for today,

They can mock and stone me but I don't like them as I said before.

Under pressure I hate those two words,

I want it all to go away.

Make no mistake about it we all get under pressure,

I hope its not me you mock today.

Under pressure.
