Watching things from a distance is my specialty,
All I do is nod for conformity.
Nothing I'd say would change a thing as you have already decided,
And just like that, the conversation ended.
No breaking out, or sign of movement.
I don't scream nor shout,
Attracting attention is the last thing that would count.
Simple thoughts of what I want,
Nothing to deal with follow ups
Jump, swing and slide in my comfort zone,
Only to find I'm swinging towards the firing squad.
I get what I want,
But this one,
This one time among the many one times,
I leave it without reason.
Tired of putting up a fight,
I'd watch it from a distance,
Because I know I'm right.
