Working For Someone Else

I cleaned out my locker yesterday 

The books hitting the bottom of the box went: 

Thud, Thud, Thud 

Shared a few laughs, gave a few hugs 

Said goodbye to the friends I made 

And tossed away my “I love my job” mug


I find sport in facing my fears 

Shedding a few tears 

While encouraging myself to push past 

The uncertainty of yesterday 

Tap, Tap, Tap 

Can be heard as I adjust my resume 


Everyday at that job my self respect depreciated 

No matter how much heel I applied to pavement 

I was mistreated and humiliated 

My supervisor was rude


She never seemed to work

But always had an attitude

And I got tired of her shit

I could never seem to do more than just pay rent 

Then I would go to a check advance 

When the money’s spent 


But not this time…

Tap, Tap, Tap

I’m not going back

I’m not going to make a living off of nickels and dimes 


No more relying on someone else’s livelihood

to make mine 

For now on… 

I’m working for me


Love always, Esha ❤
