Can’t Change It

They say if you don’t like the life you’re living, change it,

but what you can’t?

What if you put all your energy

into overcoming obstacles that make you miserable,

but you still can’t change your life

because it’s out of your control?

If you don’t like your job, they say find a new one.

You can spend hours dropping resumes

and filling out applications.

You can even go on dozens of interviews,

but you can’t make someone hire you.

You can stay optimistic,

but it only lasts for so long

before rejection letters start to feel personal

and you suffocate from failing to be enough.

I don’t like the life I’m living,

but nothing it’s out of my power to change it.
