Shiny Happy Me

This is the answer: believe.
Sleep when you are tired.
Eat when you are hungry.
Answer questions.
Be kind. Be firm.
Look forward in pink,
Look backward with reason.
Keep moving, keep dancing.

This is the answer: be broken
When the pieces
Are laid out before you anyway.
Be shattered, when exhaustion
Promises to swallow you anyway.
Be imperfect when flaws
Gain the highest ground anyway.
Be lost, when the destination is

This is the answer: be happy
When you realize you are already there,
When you taste the metallic joy
Of breaking dawn,
After the long sleep.
The answer:
Fresh like morning--
Unbridled like night.
