I don’t want you to write

I don’t want you to write about

How you used to fall asleep

Almost every night

To your mother bring beat

I don’t want you to write

About how you suffer

About not being that man

That drives, strives and passes

Every test with flying colors

But study and try as you might

Still you flutter

With success being around

Others are flying high

But you feel chained to the ground

And can’t help but wonder why

Look, despite all I love you

Don’t worry about everything

Nothing can match the smiles

And happiness, you bring

I just wish you didn’t have too

Stay awake at night

Wondering why life just isn’t quite right

I love you,

I don’t want you to write
