Loose words on loose leaves
reveal the old me
I don't want to be anymore.
Burning down my bad luck,
standing tall and unstuck,
I'm gonna take on the world!

I'm the flash birth of a new leaf
from the branches of his old tree.
I'm gonna be fine.
I won't stay anchored to my mistakes
and grounded by an old heartbreak.
She's gonna be mine.

A Ship lost at sea,
kicking and screaming;
I don't want that metaphor.
Swallowing that old pain,
coughing up my old shame,
I'm gonna conquer the world!

These new lenses that I see through
hide all those old shades of untrue.
Suddenly, I see change.
A dark fractured glass reflection
shows the good man I've always been.
Suddenly, I'm the same.

I'm a sinner
and a savior.
I'm the man of my dreams.
I'm gonna be fine.

I'm both the man
and the mirror.
And the man of her dreams.
I'm gonna be fine.
I don't exactly remember what I was listening to when I wrote this. I really wish I could. It was probably The Dear Hunter. I've been listening to them a lot lately.

It was included in Cosmosys' latest exhibit "Self-Portrait."
