Is your cup half empty or is it half full?
Or is it overflowing, due to things you think
are beyond your control?
You've caged yourself in and given me the key,
granted us the privilege,
giving me your responsibility.
Don't give me your strength, nor give me your weakness,
then tell me it's my fault and and expect it
to be accepted with meekness
Life is full of cups and cages
of our own making. We all have choices,
My mother would always say, quite sagacious
Take back your key and throw it away.
Build yourself up, not tear yourself down.
Break out of your cage and rule your own day.
