Are you fumbling around with the daily ho-hum;
doing this and doing that, each day bleeding
into the next, till a whole week, month, or year goes by?
It's easy to just go with the flow and do what it takes
to get a paycheck and fill your fridge with groceries.
You sit in your cage, in traffic for an hour or so each day,
Get to work and warm a chair for 10 hours.
Or maybe you're workin your ass off with nothing to show for it
but busted knuckles and a sore back.
Or maybe your struggle to conform has left you without a job.
You tried to do the "right" thing, but the corporate promise
has left you with a raw asshole without even the added benefit of a reacharound.
When was the last time you painted a picture of yourself?
A picture of where you want to be.
Not where you have to be?
