Too Much Advice, Leave Me Alone

I’m stressed out
by my narcissistic mother...
I’m stressed out
by my clueless dad...
I’m stressed out
by my bratty children...
They’re all driving me
frickin’ mad...

They all tell me
I’m doing everything wrong...
They all tell me
I don’t do anything right...
I feel like I have
no control over my life...
I’m always tired
because I can’t sleep at night...

I’m depressed
by my lack of will power...
I’m depressed
by the few clients I have left...
I’m depressed
that my boyfriend just left me...
It’s all driving me
to a point of utter bereft...

They all tell me
I need more self confidence...
They all tell me
my careers down the drain...
They all tell me
I need to take their armchair advice...
They’re all driving me
frickin’ insane...

I read all
the self help articles...
I do yoga
five days a week...
I do online seminars
to help me run my world...
Why is my life
so frickin’ bleak...

All the advice
is too much to handle...
I just want
to be left alone...
I just want
some peace and serenity...
I have to go
because that’s my mom on the phone...
