It started after graduation,
You must login to vote
The trembling trepidation,
Feeling inadequately unprepared
And inappropriately unaware.
Why did I choose this path?
Itís not what I wanted by half
And, yet, here I sit - day by day
In my cubicle, just wasting away.
Maybe one day Iíll win big
And the lotto will be my only gig!
On such fantasies I waste my time
Because my life I want to rewind.
Many say, "You lucky girl,"
"You made it in the corporate world.
Keep on going, up and up,
And eventually you'll hit the top!"
I want to scream, loud and clear,
"It's not the top I'm wanting here!
Iím just a little kid inside;
These high heels are just a disguise!"
Empty screams that go nowhere
Hang angrily in the cold night air.
Stripped of my life's ideals
All I'm left with is these high heels.
