    I am trying
    To come to
    Terms with the
    Fact that it's
    Okay if all
    My carefully chalked
    Out plans end
    Up going haywire
    That I don't
    Need to go
    From point A
    To point B
    In a certain
    Amount of time
    That if my
    Heart tells me
    That I should
    Stop and sit
    Under the shade
    Of the eucalyptus
    That's what I
    Should be doing
    Rather than running
    Under the sun
    Until the bones
    Beneath my skin
    Turn to dust.

    I am trying
    To come to
    Terms with the
    Fact that it's
    Okay to give
    Up on dreams
    That were fanciful
    In the extreme
    To begin with
    That it's okay
    If I don't
    Spend my entire
    Life chasing shadows
    That will lead
    Me to nothing
    But dead ends
    That if I
    Want, I could
    Spend an entire
    Night simply gazing
    Up at the
    Stars without a
    Lingering thought at
    The back of
    My mind that
    I might be
    Wasting my time.

    I am trying
    To come to
    Terms with the
    Fact that life
    Doesn't have to
    Be perfect, it
    Simply has to
    Be lived, and
    You don't need
    To be running
    Races you never
    Wanted to win
    That there is
    No need to
    "Compare your normal
    Moments with someone
    Else's highlights reel"
    There is nothing
    Wrong with trying
    To measure your
    Happiness by the
    Number of minutes
    You laughed with
    An unbridled joy
    Rather than by
    Counting the pennies
    Left in your
    Bank's savings account.

    Lately, I been, I been losing sleep
    Dreaming 'bout the things that we could be.
