First I discover I was very wrong about life
But it was necessary to be so to get here
The pain was worth it
And I’m happier than before
No one hated me as much as I thought they did
I wasn’t as evil as I thought I was
I look at guilty and jealousy from a distance
Understand them, and thank them for their purpose
I don’t feel like a freak singing and dancing down a back street
The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing
The sea is smiling, the grass is flowing,
An old man is coating his fence with varnish.
An old lady in a parallel universe is happy
And she’s never played football or been to New York,
But she has whistled in her garden for forty years,
Drying a wet jacket that still smells of smoke
Less people are pretending about what’s true
Less people are paying attention to liars and lies,
Harmony is everywhere and karma is obvious,
To the same degree denial wasn’t.
Eternity exists and in it,
Each moment is ten times better
Than the dream I had about
Being accepted by the others.
No. That’s unimaginably good!!!
Then, to top it off,
I’m 11 years old
And the best looking girl at my school
Kisses my lips and tells me she loves me.
