And So

by Carol Elizabeth Owens

And so I sat
    licking my wounds
to the tune
    of chicken soup
and a tap dance

    none of this is happenstance

I see my world go by
crystal sky

And so I rose
    wiping my tears
to the rhythm
    of rah-rah cheers
and a drum beat

    none of this means defeat

I hear a new song now
    a cappella 
c - sharp

I feel the crest of my dream

And so I
    tap dance
    a cappella
    over a sharp rhythm

And so in all of this... is life
