A Friendly Ghost

(Casper was a nickname an old bully gave to me)

Casper, Casper, Casper

What a lovely name.

Did you not know that I am happy to be shining?

Ah, did you not know that your walls would be confining?

I am confident and you, arrogant.

Find a way to give anger in your mind a sedative.

Be happy, be happy

Don’t hurt other people because of your insecurities

Sing, sing, sing

Don’t upset the masses

I promise that someday, you will want to be kind

Kindness, kindness, kindness

Start now or live in fear of the unknown

You will be better and happier for it
