In The Sunlight
(12/26/2020)


standing
here

the sun
streaming
through
the window

blinding
me
with the
outdoors

as I wait
in
for the temp
to rise
a bit

as I
wait

for
what?

what is it
that I really
need
to do?

I know
what I’m
supposed
to do

in order
to be
a functioning
member
of society

to fit
in

but most
of those things
seem a waste
to me

so in
I stay

wondering
what I
really
want
to do

because
after six
decades

I still
have
no
clue

but I
am grateful

for the
time

for the
space

in which
to wonder

maybe
gratitude
is all
that I have
to offer
the world
