What's better?

What’s better,

When you are given an inch, and you take a mile

Or given an inch and you don’t quite make it?

What do you do when they keep watching you constantly.

And your every action has you chomping at the bit

I don’t think you quite understand what’s at stake here

What if everything we do goes to waste?

We try so hard, and fight so long to be free

But even if we get it, it’s only a taste.

But that one second of freedom pushes us forward

Striving to to have a full plate

But you are to blind to see that this is what they want

And you go in to take the bait

It’s okay, It’s every humans mistake

And if you pay attention you will see

if you try hard enough, And you keep pushing


You can be everything you want to be.
