CAN YOU BE?
(5/23/19)


I see
you
there

thinking

comparing

daydreaming

missing out
on the world
around you

not fully
functioning
within
this moment
of reality

never
content

never
satisfied

always
imaging
a better
place

a better
time

I feel
sorry
for you

of course
as I write
this

I am
out
of my element

thinking
of you

wishing
for a better
you

diverted
from the
now

feeling
sorry
for me

until
I end
this

to resume
the simple
essence
my existence
