done enough

of the beating myself up thing

not good enough

didn’t meet standards set by others

sure y’gotta have something

fill the hours between dark & the light

but that’s the game everbody’s got

time to find something I can own

take me through the lean years

while energy youth my beauty goes down

he leaned into me whispering:

the thing y’really need to know

I learned in my EST session

which cost me a fortune ok

he paused for the drama

“everybody

is

as scared

of you

as you

are

of them…”

& he winked

laughing as he walked away

& I thought

ok I can run with that

for maybe

a little while

take me from the years

of being a child

through those long hours after sunset

until the world turns again
