Unwanted friends

What heavy rebuke has coated my throat
The wonder and light have billowed like smoke
Now left I express a bond with regret
That my joy could have remained instead.

Is this world what you really want?

Get used to carrying lead in your belly
Cold and dark and sickly heavy
This world says the only way
To live on is by locking it all away.

You can’t wear emotions on your sleeve
You can’t let them see you try to believe
The world will laugh along at you
Sad little one, what can you do?

Let the weight pile up inside
Feel the cold and shadowy night
Ignore the warmth of the beckoning light
Use fear, not taste or smell or sight.
