I Shop In Another


Back then it was your shop,
That place you taught us to always shop
And seek all that our hearts seemed to bother,
Now I am fed up for your goods are no longer any cooler,
And I’ve purposed from within to turn and shop in another.

Of all I am not the best shopper,
But I know that a variety you provide no longer,
I seek refuge in the new and know the world a bit better
And by this I will weigh your service with the other,
And you will understand my actions to shop in another.
