Exhaustion

Tired of playin
The let’s pretend
That’s always been the me
No more
Follow the leader
Stepping out to lead
No more what’s expected
Now setting great expectations
Of my own
There’s too little time
For the work
Of only pleasing others
Time enough left
For stepping out
Of my comfort zone
Coloring
Outside of my lines
For being the me
That only I can see
When I look at me
Don’t look
To define me
I defy definition
Redefinition
Is the word for today
And to remember
EVERY day
Is another today
