Control


Only I can take care of my child

I know what is best for him

I trust no one with him

But, what if I had died yesterday


Only I can clean the way I do

I obsess over the tiniest speck

I wreck hell for those around me

But, what if I had died yesterday


Only I can earn the way I do

I have to build the biggest nest

Living content is for later

But, what if I had died yesterday


Only I can think the way I do

I vision the whole way through

No successor is good enough

But, what if I had died yesterday


My words are harsh and cutting

My anger stabs hearts

I will work on it tomorrow

But, what if I had died yesterday


I seek peace and joy

I want to live with a spring in my step

I will love everyone tomorrow

But, what if I had died yesterday
