I am proud".
Something that you say aloud?
Things they drift
But what about your gift?
Do you spend your time unhinged
from the thankful girl within?
Is she pleasant or too thin?
Do you treat her when she wins?
Or do you look for other things
while she's crying and she stings
cause she's unappreciated
and she's tired of catering.
And would there be a difference
if you could feel her presence?
Would she mean a whole lot more
If you could really taste her essence?
Or would you just continue
to let her sink within you
diminished by consumption
of stories told untrue?
Until you lose her altogether.
