I Made It Up

I Made It Up…

So I made it up!
It’s all a work of non-fiction.
What’s it all matter, anyway?
And who really cares?

This life-canvas I was given.
Shows how I have been driven.
It’s an existence I must create for myself.
Life isn’t for sitting on the shelf.
All that is decided, I choose.
In just letting it all happen, I would lose.
In the midst of a storm, navigating in a teacup.
Gathering all riches of life in the roundup.

So I made it all up.
It’s still a work of non-fiction.
What’s it all matter, to you anyway?
And who really cares?
Defining my existence is
of my own affairs!
A work of non-fiction.
