I often have trouble with music and lyrics. I like a song, but the lyrics just annoy me because most songs seem to be about the same things: longing for someone to love you, broken relationships, angst. All that stuff I don’t do.
Every now and them I find something that’s simply brilliant. Something I can sing along to and feel and know.
I am not a pretty girl
that is not what I do
I am not an angry girl
but it seems like I’ve got everyone fooled
every time I say something they find hard to hear
they chalk it up to my anger
and never to their own fear
what if there are no damsels in distress
what if I knew that and I called your bluff?
I have been called an angry girl before. Sometimes I feel like I carry so much rage inside me because of all the shit that goes on around me. I rage. I have a right to be an angry girl, because I have learnt to see through the frameworks I am meant to live inside, never questioning. But I am not an angry girl. That’s just what they make me when you don’t want to hear what I have to say, because it makes me the one who’s the problem. It excuses their apathy.
I would rather be angry than not care at all.
