    Babble on, but I’m not trying to hear it,
    I’m sick, tired of being
    stuck in the muck
    of confusion,
    illusions of coherent communication
    (all of it fractured)
    right now, I’m trying to clear it,
    free my mind
    of this continuous unrest,
    stress caused
    by this form of living’s
    uncountable faux-pas,
    going from one struggling day
    to the next,
    my soul’s had enough
    of societal strangulation,
    desperately seeking some ventilation,
    to breathe a little freer,
    sigh a bit deeper,
    I’m long overdue for my
    exhalation,
    today, I begin building a bridge,

    babble on, but you’ll no longer reach me,
    or teach me your lecherous lingo of lies,
    ten thousand tongues tangled tightly
    around my thoughts,
    but now my awareness has bought
    my freedom,
    now they must release,
    so I can express myself with unhindered peace,
    my individuality no longer depressing me
    into a hole of outcast-ism,
    my bridge’s 1st beam
    will be a much needed baptism
    within a pool of self,
    reconnecting with me,
    breaking insecurity’s chains,
    so I can be happy…
    with me

    babble on, cause your criticisms are now foreign to me,
    holding no more weight,
    they can no longer force me
    to wait…
    for
    approval
    acceptance
    your sinister loves,
    the force me to change
    in order
    to receive them,
    today, I am building a bridge,

    my bridge, that crosses over you,
    connecting with people,
    who, like me, have grown wise,
    to your games, your gimmicks, your vicious lies,
    who will like me, simply for me,
    my bridge,
    that will keep me
    from another descent
    into your web of
    nonsensical statements,
    haphazard attempts to validate irrelevant half-truths,
    or the simply blatant lies,

    so,
    babble on,
    since from now on, it doesn’t matter,
    I won’t hear you,
    I’m no longer subjected to your predatory words,
    I’m no longer prey to your mixed-up way of thinking,
    see, today, I built my bridge,
    and now, I cross over you,
    watching down below…
    amused by your harmless chatter
