If tonight I packed up,
followed my dreams
and tomorrow wound up on tv,
do not take my success as an opportunity
to wake up suddenly
and again befriend me.
If you don’t like me for my heart–
if you don’t care for the rags
then you don’t deserve a cut of the riches
I have coming to me.
Regardless of what you choose to do,
from my angle, we are through.
You had years by my side
to show me where your loyalties lie.
I’m cutting off the dead weight
before it is too little too late.
There is just too much on my plate
now that I’m righting every last mistake.
