Shut Up

219 16 0

People annoy me
Can't they just shut the fuck up?
I don't understand how they can't see
That they need to start acting like a grown up

You're not five
You're not ten
You can drive
So try to fit in with the men

Learn your place
When you can speak
and when you have to shut your face
because maybe then you won't seem as... Unique

I wish you well in life
I honestly do
because I don't see you as anything other than a nasty little housewife
where all your plans fall through

I'm just telling the truth
Don't blame me
People don't like you youth
because you're too carefree

Get your shit together
Get your work done
Or you'll be left out in that weather
And I can assure you there will be no sun

I hope one day you understand
And I hope that day is soon
Because this act is getting bland
You need to stop acting like a baboon

Hit me up when you stop
I'll be up to talk
Maybe you'll actually end up on top
Till then I'll be watching the clock
