Lifting My Feet

In the crosshairs of my raised eyebrow
At the insanity that is demonstrated
Wishing for better than what has been
But still you continue to do the same
I no longer wish to watch this spectacle
Drop my head into my waiting hands
Unsure whether to laugh or to cry
My heart sinking to my feet by its weight
Unable to move or to progress forward
It is up to me to untie myself from this spot
Make steps for my own changes
For I am responsible for me, not for you
I will not be impeded by your actions
Lift my head, hold it up high
So that I might see all the magic coming
Because I choose to seek it out
Know that I am worthy of the better
