I want to
back up on a wall
and cry to my heart’s content
until I’m as dry as stone
because the whole world is busy with its own agenda
and i’m the only one
with no purpose
I’m spilling time like water from a bucket
and the world passes me by
its high heels clicking
I bow my head in shame
because I’ve been reduced
to a statistic
I am without soul
please give me something to do
something better to aim for
than an endless cycle of bitterness and blame
put me on the path
some path
any path
and I’ll walk to the finish
I promise
I won’t complain.
