state of mind

why I heart my media is just a state of mind 

it makes me wanna shout 

yet it makes me wanna hide 

like a city that never sleeps, you’ll be judged from 

the outside 

lowkey I compare myself with the pictures 

that I like 

on Instagram where we keep scrolling til the middle 

of the night 

the big apple, just another fallen fruit who’s forbidden to 


for itself and the ones who are too kind 

they’ll keep eating 

till the core, just to suffer 

once more 

you’ve unlocked your screen, now 

nothing goes unseen 

they yell what they think and you know what 

I mean 

when you want the best of both worlds, 

being alone or meeting 

on zoom 


in the woods would be such a 


let me save some Pinterest aesthetics, 

watching YouTube while searching 

for food 

making a fire, share it on Facebook 


around, counting mushrooms, 

listen to 


trees, telling the leaves to think about me 

the balance of both is where I feel free, 

I just need a place 

somewhere in between, to not care 

about others 

only the wind who sings about colors and 

the way I am me
