Sometimes I get
By the pressures of everyday life.
Sometimes I feel
I'm ready to give it all up
But you've just gotta keep trying
You have to find something good
There's no use in crying
Over could, should and would
See, I try to find it in all the little things
'Cuz a whole lot of little makes something big.
Small-scale things are light, can give you wings
They're easy to find, no need to dig
I try reading a paperback book,
Gentle pages and light fingers at midnight.
Or perhaps the trickle of a clear brook
That whispers good feelings, you'll be alright
I love being held by arms and a warm cover
And knowing that, for this time, I am secure.
Because there's love in my heart, it's not hard to discover
And I'm loved, too, through all we've had to endure
I live for long, spontaneous road trips
And cinnamon ice cream on hot days
Because even though sometimes ice cream drips
Eating it in a different state definitely pays.
Not to mention music, that's always great
Listening to and writing amazing rhymes, it’s rap
And even though the culture may receive a lot of hate
It’s what put Rude and Swizzy on the music map
And I always feel content during the color season, fall,
Halloween and warming up with a hot coffee.
When autumn’s here I don’t mind when school comes to call
Because it also means a decrease in degree.
See, my doctor says that my mind is mis-wired
That I'm happy because of the pills that I take
But that's not the only way happiness is acquired
Joy is possible if you just take a break
To soften the ache
