settle down and

get a

job

you're good at

buy a

house

at market price

and decorate

it

maybe have a

kid or

two

make promises that

you can't

keep

miss their events

for the

job

you're good at

watch them

grow

to hate you

hate them

back

for hating you

treat them

just

like you were

treated till

they're

just like you

realize your

mistake

too late to

fix the

problem

buy a clock

with shiny

hands

watch the hours

pass away

like

friends and family

slowly do

don't

feel so bad

it's far

too

late you've made

your bed

now

lay in it.
