I want everyone to know me
except everyone I know.
Should I be?
I want them to say,
“Hey, come check this out!”
I want them to buy it,
not because I want their money,
even though money’s nice.
I want them
to want to
consume it.
I want them to see it
and I want them to say,
I want to look at that
on my wall.
I need that.”
I want them to want it
in their souls.
I’d give it away for free
if they gave me their love.
I want to show the world.
when all the world weeps,
I can finally show
the people I know.
I will have my validation
and my validation
will validate
my courage.
But my strength is a glass wall
and all it would take
is one word.
It comes crashing down.
I am.
I’ll save the best for last.
