Today, I decided not to.
Today I decided to text when I shouldn’t,
to say "balls" to the work,
to say "sorry, I couldn’t be bothered".
Today I decided to not be reliable, or to be a rock,
to be undependable. I’m going to be a bit of a let down.
Today I have risked to see what would happen.
I decided to find what tomorrow could be.
Today I’ve loosed the child that cries in my head,
to let out the loony, the artist, the freak.
Today I’ve unlocked the cells and the gates,
the inmates have freedom, the patients run free.
