Take It Back

I sent my resumé to God

in MLA and 12 point font

My awards are all in order and

my references are pretty strong

 

My bullets points: concise, and now

my grammar's fixed and typo's found

I'm hopin' if she sees it I have

made my English teacher proud

 

And I've done my share of charity

but left out my profanities

I know that he's a busy guy

and maybe won't remember these

 

The omnipotent editor

knows all the trick by now, I'm sure

but first impression's stick so I

am leading with my best foot first

So now I wait for the response

A call from my potential boss

Did I apply 'cause I am lost?

Is it too late to call it off?

 

I didn't know I had an answer

for this question 'till I asked

but now that I am set in motion

all I want's a second chance

 

Take it Back

 

And I’m flinching as I check the mail

and flip through bills and grocery sales

I throw out all the clutter,

understand that it can’t help me now

 

But there it is, I’ve finally heard

‘cause in my hands: the holy word

The envelope is gold and it’s addressed

“To Whom It May Concern”

 

And I’m too scared

to look inside

With shaking hands

and fading eyes

 

But nothing now can change at all

the contents of this envelope

It's best I get this over with

'cause ignorance won't save my soul

 

And I read the words one at a time

but can't get past the leading line

My eyes refocus, open wide

“Your application's been denied”

 

I didn't know I had an answer

for this question 'till I asked

but now that I may never have it

all I want's a second chance

 

Take it back

 

“Your application's been denied

We can’t accept you at this time

We’ll keep your paperwork on file

We’ll reach back out when it’s your time

 

We know that life can seem so cruel

That’s why today is just too soon

You still have so much left to do

The world’s not ready to lose you

 

So many lives to still impact

Some still have yet to cross your path

We know that it’s a lot to ask

Please learn your worth, and take it back”

 

Take it back

 

I take it back
