What Am I Waiting For?

I don’t know what I’m waiting for.

The change that needs to happen here
is just so overwhelming
that sometimes I don’t know
where to begin.

The familiar is comfortable and safe
even though it’s never healthy.

I need to get out of this rut,
but it’s so hard to find a way
when I’ve fallen this far.

I’m preoccupied by things
that don’t matter,
people that mean nothing
in the long run.
