Life rides on one decision, from a simple yes or no.
My future can turn on a dime, not knowing where I go.
Who will win this battle, Anxiety or Elation?
Formidable foes clash, in my search for jubilation.
Is my cover letter best, with crucial points covered well?
Human resource manager, the only one who can tell.
So stressful now the mail has flown, as I ponder my fate.
Once I clicked on send it now, any reluctance was too late.
Tired but ever hopeful, as more days are slipping away.
I pray for an answer, to close this mind-combat today.
Elation with guns blazing, aims for my jubilant elect.
Anxiety’s persistence, questions pride and self-respect.
One more day of no reply, my battlefield turns to dust,
All hope quickly fades, as Anxiety soon wins my trust.
Then as I bow to surrender, a phone call lifts my head,
success at last, Elation declares Anxiety is dead.
