Okay
Michale Schueler, '18

It’s okay, they say.
Okay that you tick, tock, tick
Like a bomb. 
Ready to explode.

Okay that you tick, tock, tick.
And you cry yourself to sleep
Ready to explode.
Because there’s not much left. 

You cry yourself to sleep.
They say you’re overreacting 
Because there’s not much left.
And being different is a sin.

They say you’re overreacting.
Panic, Mania, Mirages.
And being different is a sin. 
Punishable by death.

Panic, Mania, Mirages.
You’re a time bomb
It’s punishable by death.
But they say it’s okay.
