Thus is life, live it, or die trying!


If you were,
To be me,
You would have to be,

Willing to put your toes in the dirt,
Afraid to walk barefoot across the grass,
Happy to see a cloudy day,
Thrilled and terrified at the sight of lightning,

If you were,
To be me,
Then you,
Would have to be,

Disdainful of stupidity,
Very often stupid,
Fearful of letting down the ones you love,
Scared of letting your true self be seen,

If you were,
To be me,
Then I’m sorry to say,
You would have to be,

A little silly,
A little sad,
A little happy,
A whole lot mad,

If you were,
To be me,
You would have to be,

A complete and total,
Mystery.
