Microstory 1897: It’s Like I Said, I’m Not Like All the Rest

It’s like I said, I’m not like all the rest
I don’t drink, or smoke, or poison my brain
That doesn’t mean that I think I’m the best
But I’m always me in spite of the pain

I have no place to go when I get lost
No way to leave my problems far behind
I dwell in them, and it comes at a cost
Yet I am nothing if I’m not my mind

Go ahead and take my legs, arms, and bones
My eyes, and ears, and tongue, and all my skin
My job, my money, and all that I own
I’d still say I was wealthier within

As long as I’m still me then I’ll survive
As long as I can think then I’m alive
