Hot Reading the Shrift

I just gotta be a dew covered tulip at dawn
and do my best and use my time in ways I want to use it
and nobody controls that but me

Thoughts will come and if I’m smart I’ll let them go
Just like you and last night and all the yesterdays before

What I can do and who I am belongs to me
What I bring to any table is my own and incomparable
I am just illuminated chemicals from the cosmos
and I just gotta be a south sea graduated pearl necklace with a diamond clasp
no one else ever could be or ever was or ever will be me specifically either
because I’m the best me there is

Thoughts will come and if I’m smart I’ll let them go
like the seasons and the residue and the excuses I’m used to

There is no such thing as perfection I have to wake up each day grateful
I have to be willing regardless of circumstance
no one else will live my life for me or do my dance
so what they think makes no difference anyway
nobody has mastered life yet and I refuse to let a single soul fool me

Thoughts will come and if I’m smart I’ll let them go
I’m put on this earth to love me and if I do I can love you too

I just gotta be a sophisticated series of ice cold towers of milk chocolate ganache covered strawberries surrounded by stabilized marscapone whipped cream and do my best and use my time in ways I want to use it
and no one else controls that but me
for infinity
