I Don't Want To Blink

Sometimes

I don’t want to think

I don’t want to blink

I don’t want to imagine

I don’t want to be seen

I don’t want to dream

I don’t want to scream

I just want to make a scene

To tell it like it on the screen.

 

Sometimes

I don’t want to drink

I don’t want to blank

I don’t want to forgive

But I want to live

I want to forget

What I cannot get

I want to speak out very loud

Because I am always proud

To be whom or what I am then and now

I love, admire others and I don’t bow.

 

Sometimes

I want to be very nice

Even though I don’t like rice

I want to forgive

I want to give

I don’t want to forget

What I cannot get

I don’t want to blank

I don’t want to shrink

Sometimes.
