Everyday Puppet

Who is this?

Who is this person that smiles for me when I'm blue?

Who is this person who says, "I'm fine" when I am falling into death's pit?

Who is this person that is smart enough to do the work, but too dumb to ask why the work is done?

Who is this person who owns expensive items that have no meaning nor value?

Why has this person conditioned my life?

Why has this person made me believe I am only alive at nights;

when I am sleeping tight.

I just wanna live life.
