Trapped And Needing Air

Slow to wake up!
Too slow,
To awaken to what has been real.
Don't expect me to freeze in place.
Awaiting for you to embrace life,
As it is!
It is to be lived.
Not turned into a quiz...
You just can't get and figure out.
And your pouting is not admired.
It's like a flat tire needing air!
You are just not there!

Slow to wake up!
No one's got time on hold.
To benefit them...
And/or their whims.
When for them time will begin again.

Show or no show folks...
Who poke along,
And make joke of it.
Putting off 'the now'
To live a yesterday today...
Should be left on steps where they sit!
Or wave to them through a window!
Don't stop to visit.
They seek someone to twist into a fit!

Many know such folks,
Who complain about their sorrows.
And they will drain someone's patience.
To stall tomorrow's anticipated taste.
And squeeze the sweet,
To share their bitterness...
With anyone they meet.

It is to be lived.
This life!
Not turned into a quiz...
You just can't get or figure out,
The wrong from right!

And your pouting is not admired.
It's like a flat tire needing air!
You are just not there...
With determination focused.
But despair you love to wear.

Trapped and getting ragged...
Like a tire needing air.

Addicted like an addict,
And trapped...
Needing air!

Trapped and getting ragged...
Like a tire needing air.

Addicted like an addict,
That's trapped and needing air!
Caged like a rabbit in fear and scared.
