I'm not Iron Man

hey

i'm allowed

to be a person too

i'm allowed to think

feel

and be real

hey

i can feel

this everything pouring

pouring from me

spilling from me

spilling leaking

yeah just leaking out man

hey

i'd like to know

some things i don't

i’d like to do

some things i won't

hey

what can i do

what can i say

to make it different

than it was today

hey

i'm trying to

talk

to you

i'm trying

to say

hey

and then i wave

you look straight

through me

like

i’m a ghost

then

you turn and walk

straight

through me

like

i am a ghost

About the author

Brenton F

I.a.J.J!
