These are the woes of being a human.
I wish i was anything but a human,
without the perks and perils
and everything in between
that comes with being a human.
I wish i did not have this sense of duty
and this tiredness that comes with it,
of not being able to live the way i want to..
of always being interrupted
when i want to write..
or when i want to be left alone..
I wish humans did not have this sense of sacrifice..
sacrifice that comes with love
or with duty.
Why cannot we be selfish for once?
Why cannot i be selfish for once?
I’m a loner, always was.
I am tired of doing sacrifices
of my own time,
it doesn’t matter if i waste my own time,
but these interruptions..
I want to be alone for once,
without hearing the dialogues
going on out there..
And this bathroom floor is my safe haven..
And i am glad this music makes me deaf for the time being,
oblivious to everything outside this small corner.
I wish i didn’t have a conscience
that comes with being a human..
I wish i was selfish enough..
i wish.. i wish..
