Leave From Comes Toward; small alef

Leave From – Come Toward

Leave from – Come toward
I have the desire, I said
But not much accomplishment.

And if I came a little further along that way
I might — like my father
Smack up against the place where I light;

I might end up in that kind of life
Get knocked up by the place
Or someone else’s life;

What it might feel like;
I could live my whole life
As if —

I is someone else.
