- What Matters
Say hello when you mean goodbye
Say it’s the truth when it’s a lie
Can’t handle everything on your plate
Befriend someone that you really hate.
Take a drag when you hate smoke
Love to impress but hate to choke.
Buy the shirt but hate the feel
Long for something that is real.
Wear stripes when check’s are in
Reply to an insult with a sly grin.
Listen to indie cause’ mainstream’s out
Go to a library because you want to shout.
Do something you hate to get the bills paid
Can’t help the homeless because you need the aide.
Impress the people you can’t stand
Because life or death lies in their hands.
Hurt yourself because it feels great
They love the things that you hate.
Fall apart at the end of the day
Unsure if it’s going to be okay.
All of these things are true when they’re not
Time taken while this poem brought
A new perspective on dark hearts
This is where reality starts.
