I’m a little more than cranky lately,

which only goes to show.

I’m getting near to breaking point,

although nobody knows.

It’s the stupid things I’m doing now,

that might be a subtle clue.

But you don’t notice me falling apart,

because you’re cranky too.

Life is presenting me many obstacles,

that I’m trying hard to sort.

There’s tiny traps everywhere I go,

and I don’t want to get caught.

Crankiness is my only escape now,

as it covers up all my fears.

It’s easier being cranky you see,

than ending up in tears.
