Cartoon one is watching but I put on a

Cartoon physicsThere are so many faces I’ve wornAnd all the dresses and castles I’ve tornI mess up like it’s my addictionI’m protecting no one Pick a lock, light a match on the roofThrow it down to kill the inquietudeI guess no one is watching but I put on a hell of a showAnd it’s just like me not to know when I’ve gone over the edgeFrantically treading air like a cartoonShould I believe when they say that i’m never gonna change,This is it, and we’re all in this alone?There’s no turning around now, I’m in the unknownSee the glass rain, madness, I’m coming for it allCaught up in my own game, but it’s where I belongAm I going to hell, and am I going alone?Am I going to hell, and am I going alone?When I want to be a young  kid againAnd wake up to the snow plow lightsI want to toss and turn in my old bed until the noise dies outCan I at least stay safe in my head?Cause I can get so scared sometimesI’m not sure that it’s brighter behind the veil when we pass sidesAnd it’s just like me not to know when I’ve gone over the edgeFrantically treading air like a cartoonShould I believe when they say that it’s never gonna changeThis is it, and we’re all in this alone?There’s no turning around now, I’m in the unknownSee the glass rain, madness, I’m coming for it allCaught up in my own game, but it’s where I belongAm I going to hell, and am I going alone?Am I going to hell, and am I going alone?Spent a whole life grinning in the black lightsIf there’s nothing out there, then what’s that sound?I shut me out till I get frostbiteAnd now I can’t come downAnd it’s just like me not to know when I’ve gone over the edgeFrantically treading air like a cartoonShould I believe when they say that it’s never gonna changeThis is it, and we’re all in this alone?There’s no turning around now, I’m in the unknownSee the glass rain, madness, I’m coming for it allCaught up in my own game, but it’s where I belongAm I going to hell, and am I going alone?Am I going to hell, and am I going alone?Am I going to hell?Am I going to hell, and am I going alone?Cartoon physics descriptionThis poem explores my identity and thoughts as a person. It takes readers through my mind as a young adolescent, along with the validation one may seek from society. It is about how the narrator (me) feels alone and as if nobody in this world is able to relate to their emotions and that each individual is alone in their own minds. It is about trying to fit into a world of people that are nothing like you and feeling lost, alone, unsure about the future. It gives readers the idea that I am in my own world, and that I believe each person is alone in their own minds and mine is very different. The metaphorical use of the title, “cartoon physics”  is used to show that the way I do things are not how others do things (the way I act, think etc…), and may not be acceptable in this society. This can be seen in the ninth stanza where I wrote, “Treading air like a cartoon”. This metaphor is used ambiguously to convey the idea of not going anywhere but putting in effort to move, showing that no matter how much effort I put in, I will never be enough for the world I live in. In cartoons, characters often tread air before falling, therefore another point that I as the poet/author am trying to get across is that I am close to the point of falling. The “chorus” or repeated lines show that all the narrator is able to foresee is a lonely death and a lonely life, as that is all they know.
