– glimmer –

I

got a fighting chance, so you

best believe I took it. I

walked defiantly around the

‘hood. Just a

little too late in the day, but

saccharine, for someone did say,

“bring a resume back,” and I said

“good.” That chance turned

 

into a glimmer…

into a closer light,

into a simmer…

ready to burn so bright.

Could’ve thrown the towel in,

grave among the human sin,

but I cannot stand down

now.
