Maybe she wants something
Even if they don’t think so
Work is its own reward
Except when it isn’t
They’ve given up
They yell at her for not living up to her potential
But she gets nothing NOTHING NOTHING when she does
She tries and tries to help herself
But it doesn’t work
The enormity of oblivion
Swallows her whole
Like rainwater into a gutter
Following the dark
Following it forever
Maybe there is sunlight at the end
In the great ocean where the pipes lead
But the water in the ocean is salty
And undrinkable
Despite is shining beauty
She floats on the current
Out to sea
Hoping it will take her somewhere better than she has left
Maybe they will appreciate her
Wherever she is going
Maybe
A girl can dream such lovely things
