Dad doesn't approve of my use of the word "necessary",
when it comes to this pretty pair,
but I wasn't going to stop wearing my old ones
until I had replacements,
and they were getting to be
"embarrassing," according to Mom.
So now my life has a little more turquoise in it...
which it needed,
I like coming to Sioux Falls
and remembering who I want to be.
Regrets hurt a little less ,
and Dreams breathe a little easier.
Here, Lonely is simply a word,
instead of a feeling.
