I rock- Birkenstock tan lines, Crisp poetic rhymes, Life and strife cannot compare, To this internal cross I bear, I give my whole soul to this earth, This true fate since my day of birth, I’ve contemplated death, With alcohol on my breath, I know the emotion, Of losing someone so close, The notion, Of their suffering stings, Your chest, And what’s best, Is never how you feel, Changed and distressed, But I passed that test, The future burns bright, A pure stream of light, Content is forbidden, Joy is sought, And brought, To- The adventurous mind, The outwardly kind, No fast forward, No rewind, I signed- Onto a tough path, Of impossible math, I’m still on the ride, Taking all in stride, I fear the stars, And life on mars, But I drive- To destiny in a foreign place, To a faceless lover’s warm embrace, I push toward- Going forward- Living each moment, For the moment, When I can say, I’m more than ok.
