for a loved one ( even me ! )

Post by saw » April 7th, 2021, 11:32 am

embrace yourself
the phrase is in the air
is it a match
or something just off the bullseye

can you be you
twenty four seven
or do you politely change
for present company

hey c'mon
you might actually like yourself
if one half gets to know the other
put in the time, wanderer

watch the snake swallow his tail
watch him roll
like a coldblooded wheel
away from the truth

tame that stubborn hula hoop
with a stick of hickory
kill the vector
embrace the new skin
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

she was fine
just the way she was
but the voices said different
and though I couldn't hear them
I knew they spoke
and so I tried to be the kind of friend
that doesn't need everything spelled out
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

part of growing up - trying on different personalities for size, depending on who you were with - eventually we find one that fits, and wear it like a favorite set of sweats. Me, I'm a Nerd, & wear my geekdom with pride.
