It's the little things- really
The sound of nail files
Or those scratchy folders
Or even the beeping of a watch
It's the little things that set me off.
Like the beating of a snare drum
Or controlling people
Or even the sound of buzzing bugs around a porch light.
But then again- when you think about it
It's those little things that motivate you
Counting down the days to an event
Buying a new pair of shoes
Or even getting a new pencil bag.
It's the little things that keep you going- even when you feel like giving up
The things that make you twitch- also make you tick.
When you explode
What's really on your mind is expressed
By that new book or pair of socks.
By anything, really.
Anything that makes you want to shout
"This is me"
From the rooftops of every home in your town-
That expresses how I think or what I stand for.
That Makes Me Tick.
