#2 Go Do

NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April. This is my attempt at 30 poems in 30 days.

There is a song I have in me
And I stayed up all night to sing it
I won't leave unless you're with me
Could that just be procrastination?
I could pretend that I didn't hear
That I was unaware of this call, this undying call
That I'm not made for here, not meant to stay

My heart is painted with envy, slapped on thick and heavy
When I see others go before me,
It makes me wish I knew how
Makes me wish I was there now
Makes me wish I could go do
Make these wishes come true
