it isn’t what i thought it would be
– life

because i never thought it had to be
anything

you see

i went along on my own mindlessly
drone, drone, drone
a happy monotone
and others asked me

“what about this life? is it what you wanted?”

and i wondered – why ask such a silly thing
why not ask birds if air is what they expected
or ask fish if water lives up to the hype perhaps?

i exist.

i don’t think or ask about it…i simply do it
and it is beautiful/painful/ecstatic/infuriating/depressing/joyous
and so so so much more

it isn’t what i thought it would be
– life
because i never thought to wonder if it should be anything else
and if i would know what that would be if it passed by me
