are you destined for greatness (in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day)

feel that burn
that fuels insomnia till
late into the morning of a new day
you write
“it’s just this never-ending feeling
that i was put here to do more
than this, more than the desk and the
swivel chair, more than this”
feel those letters and smear ink
into your fingertips
and tomorrow, when you see it
stand up.
