Moments Ahead

Life provides all the drama I need
From Britain's Queen
To the College Dean

If you think I serve you purpose
Get to know the insides, 
Don't judge by my surface

I'm not here to fill your time
I'm here to make the most of mine
So if you want to be here that's cool
If not, fix yourself,
I brought a bag of tools

I'm not here to fix you or diss you
Not about fixing flaws or telling you what to do
I'm here to enjoy the moment 
Not sure how many are ahead
I'm gonna enjoy them all before I'm dead

    Well al little more combative this one is and probably won't recieve a lot of favor, lol. I guess I'll call it the chicken little effect, not sure if you're familiar but in one version he was struck by a falling acorn, pecan whatever, and he told everyone the sky was falling lol. Sometimes a few darts may seem like a few thousand hitting places they weren't intended. I guess that's the power of words, or the weakness of perception. Thanks for the inspiration again.
