THE GIRL IN THE RED DRESS

In a drab world,

people hustling by,

busy, busy, busy.

Keep your head down,

keep walking.

 

Then she appears,

A bright spot.

The girl in the red dress.

 

Some thought she was a distraction,

but all eyes were attracted.

 

In life, we have at least three choices:

 

Be nondescript--keep head down--busy, busy, busy,

Be a distraction--complain--gripe--whine, whine, whine,

Be an attraction--do the hard work--notice the bright spots--shine, shine, shine.

 

Be an attraction


(inspired by the girl in the red dress scene from The Matrix)
