"I Got The Job!" Poem

the sign was clear of a coming tear


that rose within a subtle fear


she put her feet onto the ground


wanted anything but feeling down


that morning jacket looked so new


how good she looked in it too


she put that butter on a bread


starting fresh while feeling dead


the sunlight burned all her lies


too bright to see through those eyes


she braved it through at nine a.m


knowing well her day was damned


she took a busride to the city


it's happy to see those kids so witty


she saw the sign across the bridge


wondering if she will get hitched


she walked in with a giant heart


with a smile that made her look so smart


there was some spirit in the room


and a bit of smell of mixed perfumes


she sat and stared her eyes so wide


recalling words she preached all night


there was a lady on her left


she seemed so tortured like missing meth


she smiled softly with shaking lips


like an expert dancer with shaking hips


the bell was rang it's now her time


to seize the day that worth a dime


she stepped in with an open mind


hoping they see how she could shine


the race went well like a fast rabbit


though some her words were missing beats


she walked home after with her jaw dropped


reminiscing on that silly spot


came home and prayed all night long


for God to see how much she longed


it's been two weeks since that day passed


she knew her hopes would never last


she shut the door and began to cry


asking all the reasons why


some may say third time's a charm


that third Monday of the month


she was feeding her baby brother


forgotten her chance other people remembered


that phone rang so she got up


the fear and excitement accidentally swapped


that news so new she never knew


her first insight was falsely true


her words so brutal but payed off in total


how come luck can be so vocal?


she sat and looked into her brother's eyes


telling him her fears were lies


now it's her third day at the office


with the best moment and sinless bliss.
