My Birthday

Today I will be lazy - as lazy as I please.

I'm sleeping late and then I'll wait to fill the hours at ease.

I'll follow every feeling - answer every whim

with no unpleasant thoughts or chores to spoil the interim.

Today's my day,

MY BIRTHDAY,

a day I need to know I am special,

I am rare,

as far as people go.

- anon
