The life I genuinely want is one
I don’t have to fear or dread or escape from
I want to follow each passion that beckons
Enjoy all of it every second
Smile. Love myself. Smell roses.
Watch mountains. See the night sky. Rub noses.
The life I want doesn’t seem to be though
the kind of life that wants me, so
I’m scared again and its time to leave
Pack away the affections for others
Guard against all my human sisters and brothers
Growl. Hate earth. Play dead.
Drive to work. Drink tequila. Go to bed.
