Just One... (Entirely Shameless) Life

I will own a Bus
I will have no fixed abode
I will give my dreams substance
I will make my life their sacrificial anode.

I will live by my own hands
I will die by my own sword
I will give my all to giving my all
I will answer my own call

I am a lyric
I am a quote
I have transformed myself
I am the book of all I wrote.

I am the one.
(I think I always knew it in my head)
The Dreamer. The Romantic. The Aquarian.
….. Guess I just never said.

I will be illegal in devoutly religious countries
I am already politically and socially incorrect
I have given in to the now
I’ve forgotten more than I ever knew (about all things circumspect).

I’ll maintain my standards low
I’ll set new records for the human race limbo
I’ll continue to stand confident while they drop the bar
My legs firmly planted and my arms akimbo

I’m something only I can be proud of
I’m something I’ll never forget
I’m everything I’ve ever wanted
………………….I’m my own lab rat.

I’m a Smiling Assassin
I’m a Cheshire Grin
I’m a Cheeky Monkey
I’m Some Weird Sin

I’m my own best and favourite enemy
I am captive to my own knife
Holding myself to an unpaid ransom of
Just One… (Entirely Shameless) Life.
