Dark

does it matter when we die?  
does it matter if I die?  
don't think it matters to the sky  
most of you fuckers woudn't even bat an eye  
there's a world full of people  
and I only get a handfull to trust  
if my grown ass heart decided to go dark  
what would you say?  
maybe that it's a bad situation  
a case of adolescence  
is there a way out from these hellish thoughts?  
or should I just keep climbing up?  
only to fall back down  
for like the 100th time  
I don't know  
and I don't fucking care  
for a world that doesn't Know  
or seem to care  
for me  
or even for one another  
often finding people that I thought had my back  
conspiring with my enemies  
as if I don't have eyes to see  
so if I decided to begin a new  
feed a hungry heart  
looking at life at a different view  
can I block out the poisonous rhetoric?  
pretending it doesn't exist  
like society when tragedy happens  
is there a way for one man to save everything?  
or are we just looking out for ourselves?  
learning more  
day by day  
to shut my mouth  
keep my head down  
and walk away
