you are a gem in this world!!

I know things seem complicated right now
There’s people still pulling you and your truest person right now down
Your dear ones still won’t come around as often as you’d like
But you are a gem in this world

You may rarely look or feel your personal best
Have six straight days with the littlest rest
Or sleep for that matter
All on top of this meaningless quest
Yet you’re like the crystal I got at the boardwalk and Treasured till I lost it in this world

You are a gem in this world
Take that new truth for a fantasy whirl in your mind
Write it on the back of your hand to remember
Some people tie a string on their little finger
Yeah you’re my reflection, let’s get soft around the edges now

Make eye contact with me now
If its not going to make you too anxious or uncomfortable
Won’t you kindly to us both relax your often-furrowed brow
Fuck the people that make you fearful and scowl
Including fuck the police
Yeah you are the magic that you seek in this world

You are a gem in this world
Yeah you should never be defined
By your productivity in this diminutive system
Bring these thoughts with you to your next thing
If you decide in fact you want to go
You are amazing in your own right
You’re someone’s most beloved in time

I may love you though I don’t even know you
Look left and right ant the others
Who most surely feel this too
Let’s leave the shit behind
And think of something fun to do when we’re done here
Cause our time is finite as individuals
And as a species in this world
