If The Shoe Fits, Throw It Away


I don't like conformity
I like to be me
And if that's not okay with you
I'm done with it, here's that shoe
It fit me and I was mad
I don't like to follow fads
So if my shoes fall off
And I hear your ''ahem'' cough
Know that I don't care
Your shoe is something that your wear
But mine is something better
It sings out like a love letter
''I love me, it's who I am
And if that bothers you, I don't give a damn''

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
