A social convention

I'm on my own, in a world I've grown

I’m trying to arise from the sea of dullness in which I drown

I try to surf on the waves of hardness

and try to turn up from the lack of emotions

There was a sense of disappointment at my 8th birthday party

when the adults got drunk

I’m seriously trapped in a butter rubbed baking tin

My endgame is a boring dinner evening with a befriended 30 something couple

- we’re drinking out of tiny booze glasses

The rebels are dead and the clowns depressed

I’m paddling out;

I’m in another state;

I’m diving into ME TIME!
