It Doesn't Have To

It doesn't have to pay

                It is rewarding on its own

It doesn't have to be fantastic

                It is just enough to work

It doesn't have to make me rich

                It is rich in other ways

It doesn't have to make me famous

                It is not a need to be known

 

It doesn't have to touch millions

                 It only has to touch one

It doesn't have to change the whole world

                It only needs to touch one

It doesn't have to be filled with grandeur

                It only needs to be just enough

It doesn't have to be anything more than simple

                It only requires simplicity

 

It doesn't have to be anything

                It just has to be me

It doesn't have to be the best job

                It just has to make me happy

It doesn't have to know what it is

                It is still too early to decide

It doesn't have to require anything

                 It only exists for me
