Just a little soul searching...

Happy Pendent

I’m the happy pendent hanging from your neck

I’m the greedy creeper eating at your flesh

I’m your enemy’s greatest flaw

I’m your lucky mascot’s claw


I’m tied down to you

In every way I can think of

I’m yours

Even when I want to unbelong


I never was as pretty as you

Just the happy pendent that adorns your neck


I never was as rich as you

Just the greedy creeper eating at your flesh


What limb am I to your team?

I’ve become your enemy’s flaw, your mascot’s claw.


And how I cling on with those talons

Digging deep into your comfort blankets

Shredding them to pieces.
