Authored by Stephanie Falkowski
Waking up at 6:30am is hard to chew When rushing to sit at a desk for 7 hours is what you do. The eyes are heavy and the throat be tired It’s just not right to be ready and wired. Count the time till ten o’clock When you get your first sip of coffee And can actually start to talk. Plug in, tune out - time to listen to today’s beats Find new artists, swipe, shuffle, eh… repeats. Dance in your chair, trying to get pumped 12noon around the corner, don’t want to get dumped. Gym time is now and you muster your way Amp up the energy, c’mon legs, anytime today. Caffeine at a high always on the way back Scarf down your lunch before 2pm, or should I say snack. And then you crash and feel like you’re back at the start Half of your day left, good lord don’t fall apart. Send a bunch of texts, look at Facebook for the umpteenth time Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, hey maybe create a rhyme. Hm, what quotes of poetry strike you today? Cheryl Strayed, Mary Oliver... Fuck it, R.M. Drake all the way. One hour left, maybe take a walk Hoping subconsciously to run into you And not blatantly gawk. Snapchat your depression or euphoric joy Almost 4pm – oh boy! Time to buy dinner and rush to yoga class Try not to think of you - Eka pada, what? I’ll pass. Cry in the car, shower your day away Eat and watch reality TV even if it’s cliché. Passing out for the past hour, it’s almost midnight Alone, as usual, peace out world – tomorrow’s another fight.
