Day 12


Recommended Posts

Wasn’t what this was all about
4/12/2022, Con/Jur/d

By now
it should be clear
as the inner voice
gets quieter
it wasn’t about
the sex
the drugs
the money
the work
the food

by now
it seems it wasn’t
even about 
the art, the memories
although it feels like

by now
we would understand
more, be better people
have gratitude even for
the negatives and having
cultivated joy should
be able to coax it out
just by calling into
the wind, looking
into your eyes 
even getting
out of bed
if we just
could catch
it, make it
ours, we 
would have
if we could
stop making 
excuses, defending
the story pretending
to be us

by now.
