husk


i tire of trying to force something into being

modern mysticism presses to manifest

as though with the right mindset

dreams will drop from nether into one’s lap

my weary mind latches onto this

easy release of responsibility

but if i rely on the universe

without taking steps first

does it not make me

the hopeless sufferer

- the family dud member -

who never helps herself?

the mooch, the leech,

that the family derides?

the one who waits and waits

for the perfect fit

when any damn shoe would do?

is that what this makes me?

then, it seems

more than grasping at dreams

i’ve let ambitions slip with no one to blame

but the fatigued girl who bears my name.
