You told me once that if you write,
You'll keep your songs light

Never get into your the personal thoughts of night

About the wicked way the world turns right
Into emptiness

After we have made "our own mark"
Of abstinence?

We were not created to wait

The simple act of going straight
And completely missing the rate

Of consciousness that is
caused by the Miscommunication of
each one of us

And i try to stay away from pronouns
But that's that I see

Because even though I comes before e
You still come before me

I still overcome these
Moments of hate

And I dissolve and disintegrate
Into a pile of obsessed thoughts
About how I thought
I was the problem

You don't teach a child that they're mind matters
You show them through the way love is a pattern
And how it's not unlucky to walk under ladders
And how you can still see the rings of Saturn from
Thousands and thousands of miles away

That's how you get them to stay
Stay and sing
Stay and dance
Stay and believe in this beautiful world and these things that we fall in love with
Because this life
is gift
And gifts are received
With open arms and ease
Not thrown to pieces
The moment you see
That not all things are planned
With a pretty bow it stands
Slightly off center, but ran
Over by wandering hands
And fingers of anticipation

And that's why we wait
Because we were taught to negate
The truth from the future
Grabbing and reaching for
A light that illuminates your
Path to the nonexistent success route
Spaced evenly on the floor
Leave it to success
Keep practicing for the test
That no one really knows the answers to
So maybe it's not a question of what but who
Is the one that lies between your dream and you.

Who cares
