I’m an absolute f#*-ing mess
but I’m not the worst or anywhere near the best
because today I realize it’s not a contest
and that as long as I’m making progress
and am capable of acknowledging this
I’m at least one step ahead
of a better percentage of the rest.
How many people say that they’re fine
and everyone knows that they’re lying
because the night before they were vacillating
between sniffing lines, sipping wine
and suckling on their nine
with their finger on the trigger
trying to figure which was bigger
the size of their problem this time
or the weight of the solution.
And the only thing swaying their resolution
was an overwhelming fear of retribution
from a divinity they doubted and questioned
with their only logical reasoning being
“What have you done for me lately?”
“Am I abandoned or do you just hate me?”
Living in doubt or living without
it’s time to just start living.
We’ll never be able to figure it all out
we just need to find something to believe in
and “do unto others” is a good place to start
to begin returning what’s been so freely given.
What goes around surely comes around
and Karma’s not some kind of bitch.
One of the things that I truly have found
is that inevitably you’re gonna have to scratch
if you keep inviting the itch.
You are how you live and you reap what you sow.
When you close your mind perspective is all you know.
You’re either slowly dying or learning how to grow.
You can’t expect to play catch if you’re not willing to throw.
The only way to gain momentum is to first get some traction.
If you don’t want to be left out you should jump right in to action.
The only way to ever find peace and get some satisfaction
is to come to accept that no problem is ever bigger than the solution.
