A Poem – Week Twenty-Three

This poem was written around 1994 or 1995.  Even though I was still young, I felt pressure to figure out my life and where it was going.  This pressure tended to make me feel unmotivated sometimes because I felt like I wasn’t doing enough to change my life and I didn’t know what could make it better.

Passin’ Me By

The world’s just passin’ me by

I just sit and lie

Knowing I should do something

Before it’s my time to die

The sun is going down on me

I wonder what I will grow to be

I hope it’s something good

Anything is better than

Living in the hood

The day’s ending

The world’s spinnin’

Everything’s happening

Except me

Everything’s happening

That’s what I think

But this world’s just

Passin’ me by.
