Writing Tickets

I wrote the man a ticket,

and he began to cry,

the sight of his quivering face,

it made me want to die.

Instead I said a warning.

And I would pay for it.

The mercy I showed.

Rewarded with shit.

“Why did you do that?”

Questioned the next day.

“Because he cried.”

All I could say.

That wasn’t good enough.

So to them it was bad.

But I still felt right.

I’d made him less sad.

I wasn’t built for this.

What does life have in store?

When will it come?

I was meant for more.

I started cutting,

to take that pain away,

and I face temptations,

every single day.

Could I make money,

making people smile?

I’m sick of waiting.

It’s been such a long while.

I went to my boss,

told her I’d cut.

Hoping with help,

to slam that door shut.

They put me on leave,

then took away my pay.

“File disability,”

Was all they had to say.

So it's been a few months,

at my employers behest.

I’m using the time for therapy,

and I’m trying my best.

I went to the doctor,

got a new note,

a few more weeks,

was what he wrote.

I told my boss.

But forgot to turn it in.

Now today I get a nasty email.

I just can’t win.

Absent without approval,

was what it said.

They made me take leave!

Pulling hairs from my head.

“Can result in dismissal.”

Gee that’s so nice.

For someone with anxiety.

Just the feeling of thin ice.

It sets me back,

so very far.

Makes me want,

to crash the car.

I’m trying to get better.

Then I get this.

God I’m so angry.

Got a place they can kiss!

Now I’m spun out,

think I’ll need more time.

Simply forgot a note.

Treated like it’s a crime.

So this afternoon,

I’m trying to calm down,

just trying to enjoy,

my small little town.

I hate my job,

but I try each day,

I just wish they,

would meet me halfway.
