What's the point?


What's the point of even trying anymore?

I’ve lost the fight

And I don’t give a crap about you

And you obviously don’t care about me

You say ok

But what do you do about it?

You don’t ever help with anything

You’re never there to help with my problems

And I know you’re just a teacher and that’s not your job


But teachers are here to help teach

Not just sit at a desk and watch the world go by

Go ahead and say you’ll help

It won’t do any good though Cuz I know

HA! Yeah right youre too busy on that damn phone

On those stupid apps

Or texting someone “important”

Are you really a teacher?

Cuz I think your just a babysitter

Here to watch us as we do whatever you order us to do

Don’t get me wrong I will listen to authorities

But not ones that ignore, boss around, and

Expect more out of me than I can possible do

I know you think I'm dumb and need help with everything


But I’m probably smarter than you think I am

You people think that it’s funny to make fun of me


That I have no feelings and that I'm a robot


Keep thinking that and see where you’ll end up

Lonely and uncaring

Is what you’ll be if you think I have no feelings
