I’m going to die either way.

We always want to be
the very best
the very best wonderful
and I am not
and I don’t need to ne
I just need to breathe
even if my lungs aren’t as strong
and my heart overbeats
a little to fast
I am just living
even if it’s not at your best
and my words aren’t
always perfectly spoke
and my thoughts aren’t always articulate
like yours
that’s ok with me
if I’m not the most talented
the most wanted
the most liked
of course don’t we all want to be
why do we write
why do we create
for ourselves
for others
I do it for me
to break up the thoughts
that are long
and let them out
and yea of course
I’d like to be liked
I’d like to sell the most books
and be amongst the best
truthfully though
I’m ok with just doing it
because no matter what
I’m going to die
and rather than worry about
being the most perfect
I’d rather just enjoy it now
because if I’m the best
or if I’m the worst
I’m going to die either way.

Thanks for reading.
