Absolute Value


How’s life? They ask

I say, hey it’s cool

While putting on my mask

Trying to be whole


Stop that, I wish they’ll say

But who am I kiddin’

Nobody gets me every day

Wish someone’s listenin’


People think that I am like

The distance of a number from zero

Always a positive in life

But hey, I also do need a hero
