Is it so wrong to want more
Is having an opinion or wanting better so bad?
Should I be ashamed for always wanting the best?
Why do we frown on that?
Why should my needs be silenced?
I don’t want to talk anymore
I don’t want to socialize
I don’t want to entertain help or be there for anyone
That’s how I’ve been made to feel
Like my opinions are too much because they are too frequent
Passing judgment on the quality of life I want is disreputable and should cease
Striving for better is now unacceptable
The world is silencing me
And its the ones closest holding the tape and bounding my freedom
My mission has been deflected
My patience thinned
Raised in a way where nothing was ever enough and to push for more
The relevance of worthiness is admirable but also a hindrance
Left in a society where the bare minimum is all that is needed to get by
I’m stuck here playing chess against aspiration
