SUMMER DAYBREAK
(7/11/17)

life
will lead you
in sundry
directions

if you
allow

if you
are not
doing things
for your benefit

things
will be done
to you
for the benefit
of others

success

or at least
the lack
of failure
in this society

is primarily
a result
of effort

of daily
diligence

if you're
not up
to the task
there's no telling
where your apathy
may put you

perhaps
sitting shirtless
on a suitcase

on an already
hot
July morning

on the sidewalk
of a busy
city intersection

wondering
how you got
there

hoping
that someone
will recognize
your genius

your insight

perhaps
rescue you

from yourself
