You don’t have to,
but you will anyway.
It’s just the way you are.
Like the sun shine
when I’m ok with rain
I think of you and there you are.
I’m pretty sure that nothing I have done
qualifies me for a life with one
such as you,
you’re the whole world, it’s true.
Funny how I came from shitty places
I must have mumbled out some insane prayer
That God answered,
because He listens to the insane, I think.
So, He played a wonderful joke
and there you were!
Now, I feel inadequate.
No longer content just to die,
Something in me wants to be alive,
in a skin never more perfectly designed
to make war
and now God asks me to do more?
I hope He’s keeping score,
because He wasn’t before.
I am now the redux.
I must have asked for you
and hit all the right notes.
You’re the sun when I’m OK with rain,
proof that God listens to the insane.

One thought on “Redux”
This is the first piece that I have composed on WordPress. I didn’t feel rushed, or cluttered; just a way to while away the last bit of my Friday at work.
And they said I’d never get paid to write!
