Eat the damn chocolate cake, get your hair wet,
love someone, dance in those muddy puddles,
tell someone off, draw a picture with crayons
like you’re still 6 years old and then give it to
someone who is very important to you.
Take a nap, go on vacation, do a cartwheel,
make your own recipe, dance like no one sees
you, paint each nail a different color, take a
bubble bath, laugh at a corny joke.
Get on that table and dance,
pick strawberries, take a jog, plant a garden,
make an ugly shirt and wear it all day,
learn a new language, write a song.
Date someone you wouldn’t usually go for,
make a scrap book, go on a picnic, relax in the sun,
make your own home video, kiss the un-kissed,
hug the un-hugged, love the unloved,
and live your life to the fullest.
So at the end of the day, you’ll have no regrets,
no sorrows, and no disappointments.
