To see and look away

To see and look away

To like and leave her sway

To not say not again

To keep in on the way

Drugging for esteem

The drug gives self-esteem
And so it feels
That it does
For short

An optimistic face

I look alright
I sound alright
I seem alright
Heaven knows

An optimistic face had said
Coming out worse didn’t matter
Things had got to get better
As I moved to better things

I say it’s okay
It’s okay where I am
So long as I keep on
I see a better day

What a place to reach
I stretch from within
What a place to be
I have placed me there

I say it’s okay
It’s okay where I land
So long as I try
I’m in a better place
