Needed - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

I gotta get outta here soon
The radio is driving me nuts
but because I know there’s nothing else on
I listen as I download various programs
to help my writing, printing and editing
I know I must go soon.
As the people at the coffee shop
are there
not waiting for me, but waiting
and they would be bored and disappointed
If I didn’t show
even though they don’t know I’m coming
inside they will know
they are missing something

I will do my best to be there
because today the world needs me
