Disappointment fills me yearly
As I shuffle Institution from Institution
Waiting to be filled with divine inspiration
Staying for my money’s worth.
Disappointment fills me weekly
As commitments strangle my time
And regularity snuffs out
The dying embers of hope
Glowing in my soul.
Disappointment fills me daily
I am ripped from dreaming beauty
As the dawn beckons reality
And the sun illuminates my existence
Sunny narcissist pessimism.
