i know you are but what am i?

21 Oct

i know you stink of corruption

i know you couldn’t help but lie

i know all your phrases are borrowed

i know you are all those things and more

but what is that feeling when the sun is bright

and all seems well with the world?

what is that goofy smile beneath the outrage?

i know you are

but what am i?

an accident at birth?

an angel in an alleyway

am i friend or foe?

or maybe even both?

i know and i fear the truth

but still have times when my joy

overflows for absolute no reason

and i am happy with no evidence

to support my smile

i know you are

but what am i?
