Because I Can --- For Sierra33 (because..., She Knows She Can Too!)

There are times, I'd like to rhyme. Or sing a song, that's so sublime. Or dance away until the daylight shines.

Just because I can.

There are days I'd like to swim. Or hike across a ravines rim. Or just live according to that day's whims.

Just because I can.

There are nights when the world is right. And all my thoughts seem so bright. That is when I like to write.

Just because I can.

There are times I lay around. Times when I am not so down. It's then I smile instead of frown.

Just because I can.

To do the things I find most pleasing. To talk to friends and simply tease them. Or tell those folks just how much I need them.

Just because I can.

But here right now, I do what I want. Another set of words I'll flaunt. Upon this site I like to haunt.

Just because I can.

And who cares if I'm misunderstood. I know what it is I should..., I'll do whatever feels so good.

Just because I can.

This is what I say to you. Just do what you want to do. Go with the flow and don't be blue.
