It can wait.

I have enough time

So I think I'll make tea

And be me for awhile longer

Before I become that

Better Thing

I think about so often

I imagine it's not all it's

Cracked up to be

By that I only mean

That one day I think I'll get there

And be so surprised to find

That it's still just me

Taking another moment

Before becoming that

Better Thing
