Lean In or Run Away

Who am I to lie? 

I don’t lean in.

I run away.

I run away from everything

I am supposed to confront.

I am afraid

A coward

A fake.

Some dim connection

Looms over me;

A honeybee telling me

To pay attention

For something important

Is going to happen today

And if you do not

Lean in with all your courage 

You will fail a most important lesson

In the modern problem of differentiation.

And there will be a makeup test tomorrow

Or the next day

Or the next.
