Like It Or Not

Like it or not

I’m always caught

Being me

Wild and free

Still feels like

I’m over-preparing

Makes my life less daring

Yet people seem less caring

So then I speak my mind

Stretching out to be kind

Climbing out of my brain

Not working for show

Yet becoming a pro

With good news

We should never be sparing

Even with naysayers staring

*

Like it or not

Love can’t be bought

Being free seems to be

What it feels like

When we’re most caring

*

Make life worth sharing

And people much better fairing

By speaking our mind

Reaching out to be kind

Jumping out of our brain

To give to the show

We all become pro

And choose to please

Whomever’s not wearing thin

On the play of the day

We are blaring

*

People don’t always agree

There’s many sides to a story

There’s playful opposition

Or fierce competition

We may be

Forever sorry

If we always want more

Try to understand

Like it or not

We’ve got what we’ve got

Don’t get upset

If you have a lot

We like and we love

There’s want and need

Don’t be too opinionated

Or deluded by greed

*

Like it or not

I’m always caught

Being me

In obscurity

Feeling like

I’m over-declaring

To make my thoughts worth sharing

For people that are more caring

Speaking my mind

Stretching out to be kind

Climbing out of my brain

Not working for show

Yet becoming a pro

With good news

We should never be sparing

Even with naysayers acting unfairly
