It's not a lesson

nor a game.

It's not a race

for wealth and fame.


It's my move,

a happening, a choice.

A cry for help

so you'll hear my voice


These echoes and cries

won’t be drowned out by sorrow.

They’re stifled and silenced

then forgotten tomorrow.


This attention is dreary,

dried out and dull.

I've forgotten the reason

I want some push

not a pull!


It's not a lesson, 

nor a game.

It's not a race

for wealth and fame.


I want some excitement

make me laugh, make me smile.

Then cease all emotion-

at least for a while.


We've seen the present

and spent all our time

and I'm tired of the guilt,

sadness and crime.


I've taught the lesson

and played the game

I've ran the race

and taken your fame...
