Keep The Change
I used to hear opinions like a comfy, warm security blanket.
Like the one your mom takes out of the dyer and runs to wrap you up in. It tucks you into the couch just a little bit deeper.
Before that, I heard opinions like a sharp, cold dager. A jab of doubt would prick my side. It'd bleed, I'd cry...
I used to love opinions, that were in my favor. I'd make them mean I'm great! I made it mean 'I won!'
I find opinions are not for us.
They are for them.
To feel heard.
To voice concern.
To share their knowledge.
To express themselves.
Now, I just hear opinions. I don't give them any meaning, and if I do, I just let it go.
'Good' or 'bad' is relative.
Opinions are a dime a dozen.
So just keep listenin'
And you can just keep lovin'
You can keep on sharin'
And you can keep huggin'
But you can keep your opinion.
You can keep the change.
