One Job May Change my life


Or maybe it won’t-


After all they’ve said and done


Maybe it just won’t stick


Maybe I’ll lose it


Because of my lack of focus


Maybe I’ll give it away


Because of my lack of drive


Or maybe none of these things are true


And to their standards I do not strive


Maybe I have a different soul,


A different mind


Maybe what they say is normal


Is for a different kind


Maybe I’ll do amazing things


And in myself I will find


A job to teach


And a job to learn


A job to preach


And a job to earn
