on work/on me

it happened again.
something about my new boss
intimidates me.

rather than speak up
in today’s meeting, minor
comments were offered.

and even then I
stumbled on phrases. (sigh) why?
how can it be true?

i had hoped that my meek self
would be gone by now.
instead, she lingers.

much to my chagrin.
i have grown enormously.
this should be behind

me. I guess then, there
will always be something: to
work on, develop.

humans by nature
are far from perfect. growth comes
in the everyday.

i remain patient
for the next revelation
and can only pray

and can only hope
to step outside my self and
embrace change, again.
