Man, O Man

More recently,
I’m feeling particularly compelled
To leave.

All of this.

And your ultimatum makes it easy.
My way or the highway
It’s time for me to hit the road.

I won’t be looking back at the seeds you sowed.
I won’t be here when you reap your benefits or bullshit.
There is no benefit to me.

Except I have this glorious opportunity to leave.
And do me.


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!
