Making It by T.W. Snicket

What do you do when your friends are making it?

Making it being the phrase used to identify that you:

are not living in your parents house but own one

are married

have a child

got a promotion

had something published

got a role in a fantastic new show

What do you do when not only that but you know you have talent
That if you could just get that chance
And by the way how in the hell did he get that script in front of them

Maybe this is it

I mean

what do you do when sure you could have committed to that relationship but you decided something just was not right

what do you do when you got passed over for the promotion, the part, the play

You Work as a receptionist or market analyst that is what you do

Maybe Struggle for rent

Maybe just Hope for the best

Maybe just Sleep more

Maybe eat the whole thing and feel sick

Then one day say No.
Say maybe today is my day
Today is my day to fail and be OK with it because Fuck it

You:

Fail at as many things as possible

Fail at finding a seat on the bus

Fail at getting a raise

Fail with an office joke

Fail with flirting with Denise in accounting

Fail at as many things as possible

And
Eventually you wont

Eventually you will be so used to failing that you will not care

Eventually you will grow

Eventually you will find yourself

Eventually someone will see you and say to themselves

What do you do when your friends are making it?
