What’s inside my messy head?

What’s inside my messy head?
Being funny
And when I’m dead.
Things I should’ve
Done and said.
And always stress
About things lost
And of my actions
What will be the cost.
Was that joke
Weird or funny?
Or what I’ll do outside
If tomorrow’s sunny.
So what’s inside my messy head?
Maintaining strength
And the day’s
Shortening length.
Being a star
And messed up jokes
That I try to tell quietly
And how to escape
Authority’s yoke.

What’s inside my messy head? Tommy Swartz
