*to the tune of “our house”* I’m DRUNK in the middle of the WEEK
i was getting my nails done by a man a couple months ago and he told me something that stuck with me ever since. I told him about how i was insecure about wearing heels (being 5’8 and all) and he said “You shouldn’t feel that way because when you see a short girl with heels its just like ‘ehh, she’s cute’ but when you see a tall girl with heels its like ‘wow, she’s beautiful’ so don’t ever feel like you’re not beautiful”.
The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
I NEVER UNPACKED THE CUTE LIL NECKLACE I BOUGHT AT A FLEE MARKET IN MEXICO THAT MATCHES MY TATTOO
