That is what that friend would say

Life is wonderful, life is great

“oh hang on, let’s take a selfie”

And she’ll post up

with a caption that says,

“What a wonderful day!”

She would never say,

“Life was like a box of chocolates.

You never know what you’re gonna get.”

If Forrest Gump will ever be my friend

I trust he’ll be truthful

And he will tell me when his happy or sad

I know he would make an honest friend

And tells me what he thinks of death

“Mama always said,

Dying was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn’t”

Me too.

We would share the same sentiments

And talk about what we truly think about the world

He would look at me in the face

And he knows that I think the world is filled with bullshit

And still be optimistic

“Now you wouldn’t believe me if I told you,

But I could run like the wind blows.

From that day on,

If I was goin’ somewhere, I was runnin’?”

Because his running,

I will run and I will never be afraid
