Aborted Escapism

I wasn’t in a rush to be born


I took my sweet ass time
to garner any wisdom after

but God I ran
straight toward the grave
for so damn long

and each time
you refused me
and sent me back
with deeper patience
and buried scars

but if I disappointed you
I will make it up to them

because if there’s one thing
I’ve ever been sold on
it’s promises
