What Makes Me Tick

All the sacrifices and pain they had to endure
Yet and still we are the same as before
What makes me tick is untapped potential
All smiles and bright minds it makes me go mental
So much yet so little done
A whole life wasted in the pretense of fun
Fake attitudes and personas just to fit in
Bullying and hurt to make a friend
Brain cells wasted on recreational releases
Ancestors dying for the breakage of chains and leashes
What makes me tick is ungrateful souls
Underdeveloped and insensitive trolls
Ones who feed on the kindness of others
Ones who used to be no better than the next sister or brother
However society has a gruesome way
Of bringing us up just to repay
All the wrong we've done to others
From the top and back to the gutters
Maybe it's better this way
What you deserve is where you will stay
