Just not About that Life ~ Nolulama Msomi

I was requested:
To be normal,
Not crazy,
Not so enthusiastic
(So basically dead)
Having listened attentively
I indubitably replied;
For life is merely shorter than a 3 hour movie
I couldn't, can't, & won't conform, and fall in line amongst the gloomy stars.

I'm just not about that life
I could give you half, provided I try,
I could consider your request, with no full guarantee, however

I'm just not about  that life.

  1. Don't ever "fall in line amongst the gloomy stars."
    God created each of us to SHINE, in our own ways. Stay crazy. Stay enthusiastic. And keep writing. :)
