They say the word
and I fold myself
into any shape
to carry their message across
I did not choose to be here
(one does not choose to be born)
but if I must play this ridiculous game
I will do my best to feign enthusiasm
Right now, I can’t use my words.
I will be found out, disqualified.
so lay low, play along too,
until I find new ways to reach you.
I will take charge someday
and rewrite the rules in our favour.
