Show Me A Person Who Got Here

Rosanna Jimenez

The way I’m attempting to get there

I need to know it’s possible

Via indirect routes

To arrive close to a destination

That destination seemingly intent on killing us

Oh, but to be known and to know

Please show me a person

Who learned terribly late in life that

Wanting the hard thing isn’t insane

That failure is victory in utero

I need to know it’s possible

I need to know I’m possible, please
