The Election

What are my chances of
Actually winning?
Does it matter?
If I only try – does that count?
Doesn’t sit well with me,
Failure is almost
There’s a key to success,
I know it,
I’ve seen it.
Somehow, I have to
Pry open my box of
It’s not easy,
But I have to try.
Think outside the box.
Create a circle.
Be unique.
Stand out.
Be real.
Is that what they want?
Give them what they want.
They decide, after all.
Am I what they want?
