What does it take to be original?
To stand out, say…
You’re not average?
They say everybody’s different,
But if they each follow each other,
Then who started the trend?
Follow the tracks,
Through the grind, floating dust,
The dark path through the woods,
Then who do you run into?
The one who had the balls to take a chance.
Then it enhanced through time,
To you, maybe even your whole crew.
It grew and grew,
And finally it blew out of the water, into a million dollar plan.
Only to be later purchased online, or in your local drug store.
Later, thrown on the floor,
Used, just like a dirty old pair of underwear.
What a bore, so last season,
Who wants it now?
Always something bigger,
Always something better.
So how do you do it then?
Stay on top?
While there is always someone breathing down your neck,
Waiting for your cookie to crumble.
Now that’s the million dollar question.
So bring it into your chest and,
Let it linger.
When you get it,
Put your finger on it.
Soon you’ll be a swinger,
With million dollar rings on your fingers.
