I Can Do Better

I can do better
Than this
Than you thought I could
Than I thought I could

I can improve
I have the ability
I have the potential
I have the know-how

I can rise
Above now
Above all this
Above my equilibrium

I can sit up straighter
Speak more clearly
Write more succinctly
Photograph more carefully
Eat healthier
Exercise more regularly
Drive more safely
Pay more attention
Waste less time

I can do better
But I don’t
And you wonder why
And I wonder why

I can improve
But I coast
And settle for less
And do just enough to get by

I can rise
But I duck
And shy away
And wait... for something
