Complacency

I cling to the notion of time.
With enough time and patience,
Perhaps my desires will be mine.
I don’t think that I have the endurance
To wait for what I know is coming.
And I know, It’s not what I want.

This deadline keeps moving forward.
The finish line stays just beyond my reach.
My quest is drenched in futility.
My desires are as unattainable as you.
Alone, I am not enough and I know it.
As time goes by, I grow more complacent.

In order to win you over,
I know what I must be.
I refuse to submit to that.
It’s either all of them, or me.

My conscious screams “You’re wasting your time”
I hear it shriek when ever we speak.
“Just give it more time” Is my only reply,
Though I know it’s true, through and through.

There are so many who sing the same song.
“A desire for more, Is it so wrong?”
I don’t condemn those with this desire
To each their own, If that’s what lights your fire.

In order to win you over,
I know what I must be.
I refuse to submit to that.
It’s either all of them, or me.

It’s either all of them, or me.
But I know the answer already,
So I take my place in complacency.
