Joyful Girl

I regret being kind

I regret being selfless

I regret being interested

In people who are worthless, and yet

Last night I was reminded

That I used to

Want to be

A joyful girl,

I used to hear this song

And feel my heart swell, knowing

That someone understands how I feel.

And suddenly, again

I don’t regret the kindness

I don’t regret being selfless

I don’t regret being a joyful girl

I do it because I want to

I do it just because

That’s the way I’ve always been —

I do it for the joy it brings.
