so i’m applying for countless editorial assistant positions and one of the applications says, tell us something unique about yourself – something that makes you stand out. i can go into countless details about what i like, who i love, my coffee addiction, random adjectives that describe me – as well as my work ethic, or i can do this….
words flow through my bloodstream
to a different beat.
not to reveal pain through bitter teeth
but to reveal truth surrounded by heart,
portray the moments between breaths-
fueled to impact, my words are the start.
words emerge when my body bleeds,
to do this job is my reason to breathe.
you wanted something unique? find me another application where someone applies with poetry. you can take the candidate with seventeen internships or you can take me. i can’t speak for them but i can tell you i want this – this is my dream. and i’m just working for a chance.
