apogee

Its difficult to understand

you tell me

your parents loved you

only wanted the best

brought you up as best they could

supported you through college

those long university years

& here we are side by side

same place same time

telling me you’ve done good

& I’m looking around

thinking it’d been a struggle

to get here

this ain’t no resting place

but a stop along the way

for you it’s the apogee

pinnacle of your career

maybe having all that support

robbed you of your own drive

not that I got much more

except that wanting to thrive

move on to the next thing

that this living breathing brings
