A day for a poem
    no I’m not
    yes I very much am*
This was never new

The hubris of ambition
    Faking our deaths
    to realize our lives
Always stuck to the plan

Changing the world
    while humbling
    while mind blowing
Was never accidental

Putting in work
    long days
    longer nights
Earning a semblance of cred

So her(e) we go (again)
    it’s all or not
    win or leave
I will outwork you

*this is true
