ASK THE DEAD
(7/17/13)


I don't
know
what else
to tell
you

I do know
that you're
unhappy

frustrated

disappointed

I wish
that you
could realize
that our lives
are such
improbable
anomalies

true miracles

they
should satisfy
all
of our desires

all
of our dreams

but
a lifetime
of programming
and propaganda
has told us
what life
should be

travel
possessions
social encounters
extraneous
experiences
of every
kind

exaggerations
presented
as ideals
in order
to sell something

their promises
will always
reduce
to dust

find
the thrill
in the current
breath

the current
heart beat

and no
external circumstance
will dissuade
your enthusiasm
for existence

your
future
is realized
in the ever
changing
now

simply
be alive
and know
that there is
nothing
better

nothing
more real

you shine
with creation

so light
your own
path
to living
