Why do I tire my eyes
Watching princesses and heroes lives?
Maybe because they try and their
“try” is never wasted
and whenever there’s danger
they always face it
they’re not afraid to jump off buildings
swing on vines
they know they’ll always
come in the nick of time.
But I, oh but I
will jump off things and fall on my face
run a race
and never taste
Or get my hand held high
So I guess this is why
I flock to screens
the reason why I binge watch TV
Because I want heroes and princesses
for an hour, to deceive
and remind me of what I can never be.
