It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

Clean Slate and Pieces of Me

Wipe it all away
Make it as if it’s never been
       The near misses
       The failures
       The heartache

A little magic
To make it all
       go away
       better
       okay

Let it go
Flow out of me
       Like evil spirits
       Like stains washed away
       Like sunshine after rain

Start with a clean slate
A sheet of paper
       so white
       so clean
       so new

But

Has it all been for nothing?
Did it never matter?
       Each heart break
       Each lesson learned
       Each bit of wisdom gained

I take it all back
Every single piece
       The good and the bad
       The happy and the sad
       All of it, as it was and will be

That’s me, right here
       A little worse for wear
       A little rough around the edges
       A little grey on top

All the pieces that make me Me.
