Scream

traffic-jam2

I don’t feel like

Playing the game

Just giving in

Accepting my fate.

———

I feel like I want to

Shout!

Scream!

In the middle of the road

Bring everything to a halt.

———

I don’t feel like

Taking it on the chin

Keeping the rules

Letting experience dictate.

 ————

I had enough of the lies

Worn out half truth

Subtle deceit

Passive existence.

———-

I want to run

Jump

Leap

Embrace

Love

Fight

Dive into the river

Drown in the flood

Shout!

Scream!

———-

    I know! It’s a great feeling when you can give in to it. Bugger convention!

    …some feelings like these are rather kept inside than done, too bad…i feel you… sometimes i do want to do all of these…but maybe not the right world to get all the understanding we deserve…smiles…

    ha. I’m always so annoyed when a motorcycle slithers between cars in a situation like this … but mostly because I wish it was me being the rebel. 🙂

  9. Sara v says:

    Oh yes, traffic makes me want to scream too.–and so many things I’d rather do than sit in my car staring at taillights! Excellent write 🙂

  10. Susan says:

    … this is one to read on ‘one of those days’ … an affirmation of the rebellion that we all feel at different times in our lives!
