Three-Sixty Five

Today is the day I get away with leaving dishes in the sink
Today’s the day I can tell people what I really think
Today is supposed to be my day
But my mind is on others
Building bridges toward the castles of my sisters and brothers
Today I’m supposed to be selfish
Today I can cry if I want to
Well good, because we’re one more D from a disaster
Should I be sad mom’s in the hospital?
Or glad baby’s gone to do her masters?
I’ve lived to see another year
But auntie’s been diagnosed with cancer
She cut off the cells in her chest
But it spread throughout her body faster
Healthy as a horse this time last year
365, a year later and she’s stuck in a chair
Now tell me what part of that is right
Facebook friends still sending candy crush invites
Today’s the day I’m not supposed to complain
The day I got a hole in my heart but can’t show you pain
The day I spend money on material things
Just to help me get by
The best things in life are free
So I’m waiting on the price drop
The Earth rotates around the Sun
I’m just waiting for this ride to stop
Because I’m feeling just a little nauseous as you can see
And with all that said
Happy Birthday to me.

I figure I can browse for a home on the line, faster than i'll be able to buy one made of bricks.
