Is it wrong for me to want to live in blissful ignorance?
Create a bubble around me to block out the world's misery
Don't get me wrong, I have empathy
And I think that's part of my problem
Hearing about the pain that others experience
Becomes the pain I (could) experience
My sympathy always goes on rampages when I listen to the news
Is it wrong for me to have the desire to block every bad thing out?
To save me from the pain that is not mine
To soak in the love and happiness
But stay afloat and far above the deep waters of pain and misery
Or am I simply a spoiled brat who is privileged to have such a choice
To have that inflatable life vest that keeps me close to the sun
And far away from the dark water beneath
