I Don’t Know

Why are you so calm?

Why are you so happy?

They all ask

Honestly I’d rather be at the mall

But I feel safe

It’s like a home base

Don’t worry about

Mace

Guns

Drugs

I don’t mind the bugs

Hey yo cuz

I won’t respond

I’m not fully gone

I’m trying to be a good person

Faithful, loving, caring, hopeful

It’s harder than you think

It’s not all pink

I try not to blink

So I know I’m safe

I keep up my guard no matter what

Because in the end

I’ll always be treated like a mutt
