*apathetic kazoo toot*

so they don’t toot their kazoo
for every passing parade
i have to merit attention–
earn it or don’t get paid

some say it’s harsh and rigged
but i say it’s discerning
if they all liked everything i did
what would i be learning?

no, i won’t get a trophy
no, i won’t get an “A”
no, i won’t get a million bucks
for just waking up today

how will we be equipped and prepped
if we’re all coddled like cattle?
how will we conquer the glowing opponent
in the smoldering heat of battle?

it’s okay to fail
it’s okay to lose
it’s okay to just. be. okay
egos can handle a bruise

don’t. stop. trying.
