Sitting On Chris Coy's Lap

By Rebs

I am soaring like amazing grace
Earned that right a long time ago
Inked it into my neck
Surveying all of them beneath me
Choking on their wishes like cheap wine
The universe stopped caring
No charity is given to the able bodied
Breathing in the free world abundantly
Air bows down to my jeweled shoes
I am elegance inherited

I am beautiful like a silken glove
Taking care and taking heed at a glance
Sea salt reveals my glow
Eyeing the ones reading beauty magazines
Make up can't conceal the envious mouths
Just best to stop while ahead
Know that it's there or that it's not there
Basking in the appreciation by rights
Reflections aspire to my painted nails
I am genius studied

I am smart like Nicolo Machiavelli
Learned it at my father's table
Read The Prince like a comfort novel
Passing those simpletons on my way up
Taking the test doesn't always work out
No surprise on that one unfortunately
Fools run every street in every city
Glowing at the tokens of hard achievement
Studious ones remember my words
I am love incarnate

I am loving like a blushing bride
Enjoying it as well I should
By my Will I am resplendently taken
Shedding no tears for those without
Am I supposed to be apologetic
Let them wail in their self inflicted misery
Unlucky suffers rightly so
Kissing unashamedly because why not
Wanted it all and took it all and then some
I am very happy.....

I really needed to remind myself of how far I've come, since the last few days haven't been so good for me. Enjoy, my lovely friends :).
