man

I was just waiting

for something to catch

a spark

a fire in me

& those around

teachers

parents

were impatient for that

to happen

pushing

prodding me into choices

& those

I felt strongly

were not worth the 5am

get up

they seemed to think necessary

while they slept until eight

I was waiting

for the thing

some thing

any thing

that would sustain

keep me going

in my life

they felt

somehow

a job could do that

& they are still wrong
