Outta' Here

by Margaret L. Hall
There are ashes in my coffee...
and a checkbook in my hand...
I have no earthly idea,
where i'll go...just somewhere there is land...

I've pulled up all the daisies...and I have
thrown the butterfly away...
Gonna pack some clothes and bottles...
let the rest of the garbage stay...!!

Take the hamster to the pet shop
Fix the faucet...and lock the doors...
I can't be responsible for EVERYTHING...
Each to their lifetime chores...

Don't forward any mail for me...
as I will not be where you can...
I will be in the basement of nowhere
where I can dissect this man...

I am pretty hot as you can gather...
I am hellbent on being renewed...
I am ready to live a different life...
One not getting "screwed"...

I can't stand being lied to and I got
a big dose of it today...
But,...as my ex once told me...
If you play you gotta pay!!!

So...stakes are pulled up and bundled...
and the map is in the seat...
I'll see you around the corner...
Or, on the other side of the street...

Not doing a "pity-party"...
not even a drinking song...
I am just fed up with a lot of stuff...
And, I want to move along...

Need to re-invent myself,...
become a different woman in thought...
Go back, maybe, to the canyon
where I first found what I sought...

The soul has to have its "soul food"...
and it has to nurture itself again...
Picking a spot on the map now...
just have to reach out and begin...
