d a l a

drown your regrets
as you forget them for a while
let the liquid warm your head
and numb your face that smiles
your time here is limited
on this oppressive world
along with happiness that inhabited 
this naive, little girl
we're wondering what it will take
to make yourself think 
society wants you to break
and your sanity to shrink
as she lies here naked
on the cold, vacant floor
her vision becoming faded
is time slowing down? she's sure 
they're going to notice when
you don't show clarity 
questioning emerges time and again
it brings you to asperity 
when will this foolishness end
and he decides to quit
his mindset forced himself to amend 
suicide he wanted to commit
