There’s something about putting on a daily blog that can at times be… challenging. I mean, here I am, putting myself out… EVERY day… whether I really want to or not. I admit it, maybe sometimes I’m not really in the mood (like now a little bit, lol).
And yet, it doesn’t really matter. I have made the commitment. My word is on the line, and so I follow through.
I shall write a rhyme about it:
“Leaving Cool Behind”
Leaving cool behind, sometimes I don’t want to shine,
sometimes I’d feel fine just closing the blinds
at home with what’s mine, they call it privacy,
but lately all I see is this constant need
to blog what I think, and I gotta watch what I speak,
because I want it to be good, on a positive streak
something I’m proud to show, but you know
sometimes it sorta blows, cuz I gotta keep in the flow
And keep the expression moving, even though
I might wanna say “No, man, I just gotta go.”
A tight-wad of the mouth, a close-lipped pout,
Like “I’m not in the mood, always gotta go out.
Today I’d rather stay in, don’t wanna put on a grin,
These currents look grim, and you say I gotta go for a swim?”
But then I remember, “Oh yeah, I forgot
I have total freedom on this page where I jot
I can do what I want, whether cold or hot,
whether up or down, don’t have to stay in the same spot!
I get to be honest, I get to be truthful.”
And there’s something sorta beautiful about being dutiful
About just sticking it out, and showing up for work,
Rather than sulking and balking like a jerk,
After all, all I need to do is follow through
And so I write my daily post for all of you 🙂
One Thought to “Day 77: Leaving Cool Behind (original rhyme)”
LOVE the RHYMING. The voice is so upbeat, in contrast to the mood of the author! This works! It is a great technique. That’s why rap is so popular, I guess, all those “heavy” messages in a sing-song, jingle jangle voice.
