Simple But Significant (VII)


Look me in the eye,

What can you see?

Do you see my past?

Or do you see me.

Look me in the eye,

Do you see someone full?

Who is always competing,

With his potential.

    “willing to fight” by Ani DiFranco

    the windows of my soul
    are made of one way glass
    don’t bother looking into my eyes
    if there’s something you want to know,
    just ask
    i got a dead bolt stroll
    where i’m going is clear
    i won’t wait for you to wonder
    i’ll just tell you why i’m here

    ’cause i know the biggest crime
    is just to throw up your hands
    this has nothing to do with me
    i just want to live as comfortably as i can
    you got to look outside your eyes
    you got to think outside your brain
    you got to walk outside you life
    to where the neighborhood changes

    tell me who is your boogieman
    that’s who i will be
    you don’t have to like me for who i am
    but we’ll see what you’re made of
    by what you make of me
    i think that it’s absurd
    that you think i
    am the derelict daughter
    i fight fire with words
    words are hotter than flames
    words are wetter than water

    i got friends all over this country
    i got friends in other countries too
    i got friends i haven’t met yet
    i got friends i never knew
    i got lovers whose eyes
    i’ve only seen at a glance
    i got strangers for great grandchildren
    i got strangers for ancestors

    i was a long time coming
    i’ll be a long time gone
    you’ve got your whole life to do something
    and that’s not very long
    so why don’t you give me a call
    when you’re willing to fight
    for what you think is real
    for what you think is right
