Grasping at Things Way Out of Reach

Do you dream of
“the other side?”
You know,
the other side of whatever is in front of you
right now-

drugs,
sex,
gossip,
food,
poverty,
shame,
guilt,
the past…

It is hard to be here sometimes
“in the moment” as it were
But that is where we exist.

We know we don’t want to live in the past
But maybe sometimes we need to remember
That we can’t live in the future either…

  1. Soul Walker,
    Getting to other side is an honorable task and I so long to get to other side of me. I get in my own way too often. Thank you for such evocative poetry.
