My shine

I’ve got to get my shine again
You know that sparkle that brings people in
I lost it somewhere around the bend
It’s somewhere at a bus stop waiting for its bus to come in

I tried to find it around the house
I looked under every nook and cranny
I looked in drawers and in my blouse
All I saw there were my boobs just sagging

I ran around the neighborhood
I searched through the bushes and looked up trees
My neighbors now all think I’m rude
Escorting me out of their backyards with clinched teeth

It wasn’t with my mail, my purse or my keys
It wasn’t with the dog, his bone or his fleas

I thought I saw a little glimpse while losing my mind
It was a tiny spark of light
I saw it searching my dresser for that tricky little shine
When my reflection came into sight

I knew right then that glimmer was near
It had been trapped deep inside
What I saw in that moment made everything clear
My sparkle had decided to hide

I know I won’t find it at the store or at the show
I know sexy heals will not make it spark
I have to look within and search for the shine I know
I just need to bring it out of the dark

But how?

    Hard to get new energy. Spring is coming. Good time to do something different. Sometime we must re-set our life and leave the bad stuff behind. I hope for good days a-coming for you.
