Just Because


Just because I’m mal adjusted doesn’t mean I’m not adjusted
Just because I’m empty pockets doesn’t mean I’m empty hearted
Just because I read too little doesn’t mean I think too little
Just because we all get old doesn’t mean we all get wise
Just because the weather changes doesn’t mean my mood will too
Just because the sun is shining doesn’t mean it will pass through
Just because you see them smiling doesn’t mean they really doo
Just because you don’t feel good doesn’t mean you are not better
Just because its almost twelve doesn’t mean it’s a new year
Just because you eat so healthy doesn’t mean you really are
Just because she looks too simple doesn’t mean she really is
Just because she makes you angry doesn’t mean she really hates you
Just because the world seems little doesn’t mean it really is
Just because she’s happily married doesn’t mean she really is
Just because they reunited doesn’t mean they really did
Just because a band is singing doesn’t mean it really is
Just because I look professional doesn’t mean I really am
Just because I speak persuasive doesn’t mean I speak the truth
Just because I like spaghetti doesn’t mean I’m Italian
Just because I play around doesn’t mean I’m into games
Just because I am now tired doesn’t mean I’ll stop from writing
But I do for now.

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
