Is Healthy

Just keep waking up
keep working.

keep smiling
and rolling with the punches.

just keep waking up
ignore the hurting.

just keep working
and find fulfillment in selling.

keep waking up
and drinking coffee.

keep working
until the 2 days off.

keep waking up
and staying up late.

get up early
go to work with a full, made up face.

keep waking up
think about sleeping.

work long and late
into the evening.

wake up again
work is never done

nothing interrupts the waking
until death comes.


About Jessica Lee

Jessica is a twenty-something poet who performs most of her work on stage in Spoken Word. She has found writing therapeutic since she was child, and has pursued it ceaselessly. She enjoys writing even the most fleeting thoughts and dreams as SensicalRavings. Between long retail shifts, she enjoys writing observational pieces (always with a slant) of locally relevant subjects as ALLGainesville. If you appreciate inspiring, coming-of-age suppositions, become a follower. Though it's not always roses, it's raw!
