Poem Portal #21: Everything I Need

fingers crossedThis is a song I came up with to help me relax whenever I am suffering major anticipation/fear of disappointment over something. I mostly use it when agents ask to see the beginning of my novel, but occasionally when I’m waiting for the conclusion of a contest or even a day-job interview. I wrote this soothing verse circa age 20 (around the same time that sparse requests to see my work started):

Whether it’s something
Nothing
Or everything I need
Life will be nothing less something
Than what it’s always been
I still will do what I start
And sing from my heart
Forever me
All that I love will live in me and be free
Whether it’s something
Nothing
Or everything I need
