it’s okay

it’s okay to be skinny
some people like it
it’s okay to be chunky
some people need it
it’s okay to be strong
cause things need to move
it’s okay to be weak
we need to be moved

it’s okay to change
nothing stays the same
it’s okay to stay the same
nothing ever changes
it’s okay to be straight
we need to make babies
it’s okay to be gay
cause we need to make love

it’s okay to be proud
cause we need to take action
it’s okay to be humble
action needs to take us
it’s okay to stay the same
nothing ever changes
it’s okay to change
nothing stays the same

I don’t have it all right
you don’t have it either
but everything’s gonna be alright
just stop and smell the ether
