MISTAKEN IDENTITY
(6/21/17)

there
are those
who work
hard

every
day

others
may consider them
ambitious

full
of potential

but by
the end
of day

these
industrious ones
turn off
their internal
motors

happy
to watch
the clouds
float by

to listen
to the wind

needing
no more
from life
than to be
alive

they are
great disappointments
to friends

family

neither
successful
nor any
fun
any more

smoldering

looking
as if they might
catch fire
at any
moment
