Slave

I’m a slave to my scale,
And a slave to my mind,
And a slave to this world
I can’t escape, it’s all the time

I’m a slave to my food
And a slave to my mirror
I’m a slave to my schoolwork
And a slave to my razor

I’m a slave to my bedroom
And a slave to my computer
I’m a slave to my email
When will things ever get better?

But worst of all,
I’m a slave to myself
I’m not free until I’m rid of my guilt
I work till I die
So that I can finally go to sleep
Because not being is the only thing
That isn’t the death of me.
