Standing in a crowded room

All eyes are on me

Meant to give a presentation

I had worked hours on.

I have to go.


Waiting for the bus to come

To pick me up

Taking me to the same place

I go day after day after day

Suddenly, and urgently

I have to go.


Standing in front of my family

Marrying my best friend

The man I knew I could count on

Without warning

I have to go.


Living a life

Most would hate

Being the one person

Everyone blames everything on

Nobody questions

When I have to go.



It is why we have two feet


I have to go.
