#1 Way to Keep Your Happiness in Check

Keeping up with the Jones’s is hot mess, and gets exhausting

Not to mention, checking friends list

what I’m wearing , or what it costs me


Mind your own and stay in your lane

You do you, boo-

and I’ll do the same


Don’t need you checking up on my


or critiquing my methods

I didn’t ask for your opinions

or need half assed, loaded suggestions


Just keep it to yourself

if you can’t keep it nice

I don’t remember asking for you to give me your advice


Don’t like the tone I’m using

go on then, keep on walking

You only like me when I’m giving

you tune me out when I’m talking

I’ve decided to switch it up

and try on this new me

What response will I get

let’s just sit back, and we’ll see
