That I Would Be Good

July 31, 2005

this song resonates in me…no matter what’s going on in my life. It stikes something in me and makes me listen.

that I would be good even if I did nothing
that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that I would be great if I was no longer queen
that I would be grand if I was not all knowing

that I would be loved even when I numb myself
that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
that I would be loved even when I was fuming
that I would be good even if I was clingy

that I would be good even if I lost sanity
that I would be good
whether with or without you

I’ve been decrowned, and yet I wonder if I still think I’m queen. Perhaps I should take a title again, although I reject Mother. Your Majesty, have you got an office for me?

    You are still a queen, my friend!
    don’t lose the ideal that we all strive for.

    *curtsy*
    I’m trying to figure out what ideals I’ve lost and which ones I’ve found new again. For some reason, the second summer is sharper and more different than the first. You’ll always be the queen, though, and the rest of us merely playing at royalty. I’m content to play, and explore, and perhaps one day be on the thrown again.
