This is me talking to me.
Are you in?
Are you listening?
Are you OK down there?
Because we’ve been getting some
And it’s very worrying.
You’re not lying?
That’s alright then.

Life may not be perfect
But sadness isn’t worth it,
And no matter how bad it gets,
Or whatever the world may expect
I’m not done hoping yet.
I could weep, I could cry

I thank my fortune in my paths and choices,
For they have led me to this path and choice.
I thank fire.
I thank my fortune in my abilities and disabilities
