MANIC MOVEMENT
(5/9/19)


as children
we are inundated
with exhortations
from our
parents

our teachers

our peers

from advertisers
worldwide

"get out
there and
DO
something!"

they
demand

demands
which are
ingrained
within us

dogging
us
throughout
our lives

to the point
where too many
are unsatisfied
unless something
is happening
for them

an activity

a diversion
of some
sort

24/7/365

sad really

that we
are robbed
of the notion
of just sitting
still
in silence

to experience
the total miracle
of our existence

without
attaching
a time
table

a price
tag

a bucket
list

to each
breath

to each
heartbeat

going

going

gone
