I Must have Forgoten.

I Must have Forgoten.

A Poem by nothing grinner

Teen angst Lyrics with a bit of blake!

I forgot that moneys every thing-
I forgot that I shouldn�t think-
And I for got to live up to you�re standards
And you think you know me, well you sad bustards-

�I forgot to be perfect- I forgot to be safe-
I forgot to fit in- I forgot to be Fake!�

I forgot to be cool and instead I was cruel-
I forgot to be happy- but I�m not Larry!
And my problems you see are nothing compared to yours,
And I know nothing, forget my life how is yours?

�I forgot to be perfect- I forgot to be safe-
I forgot to fit in- I forgot to be Fake�

I for got to join your armed forces-
I could never tack your dam orders-
And I for got to sip that s**t that you stir-
I for got to be like everybody ells sir.

I forgot to be every thing that I am not-
I forgot to leave all doors locked�
And oh I almost forgot, to pleas you in every single way
I forgot to lie to keep the smile on your face.

�I forgot to be perfect- I forgot to be safe-
I forgot to fit in- I forgot to be Fake�

I for got to be tall, apologies for being skinny and small-
I for got to be up, instead I fall down
I forgot to smile, well hears my frown.

�And a truth that�s told with bad intent
Beats all the lies you can invent� �(William Blake)

Author's Note

nothing grinner
the quote of William Blake's is one of my favorites and i felt it would work as a nice refrain if this was to become a song.
I wrote this when i was 18 and off on one!

I love it! I think this would sound great if put to music. It flows like a song, the rythm of it is great. I'm usually not a fan of repetition of words but i think its perfect here. It wouldn't be the same if you had found a million different words for "forgot".

Its great, and i like the message in it a lot. Love the quote as well, great write.

I can read you were off on one, and I have been lately too....therefore, I can identify with your message....very well-written, and again, more great work! Keep it up!
