There it is

Don't you see it

Look past the white

Into the blank

See the grain

The way it weaves

Look under

The pressed pattern

Do you see it

Each particle

Holding the next

No; look closer

See the colors

A mix of greys and white

Grouped together

In nonsense

Starting to see

The connection

Blank mixed nonsense

That's me

Pressed into a pattern

To fit the need

That sheet of paper

That's me

Observations 2017

I watched a rogue balloon soar above my head. It was free of its string, somersaulting on the warm wind.

My first thoughts were of the children who watched it leave from their birthday table. Break away and drift up and up. I wondered if there were tears.

Then I thought maybe it was a graduation balloon. And the teenagers had laughed when they cut the balloon from its post, ready to suck away the hard earned dollar that paid for the helium.

It got caught in the branches of a tree across the way. And as they swayed and creaked I waited for it to break loose. I wanted to see why the balloon was purchased. Who was it for. I wanted to see it flip and fly and be free.

My phone beeped and I turned away for too long. Thoughts of the free-flying trapped air flitted from my mind.

When I looked again, the balloon was gone. And I wondered whose eyes would catch sight of its next journey. I wondered if they cared enough to know where it's journey started.

People's Sacrifice

I'm a sacrifice

For the people,

Mend me how you need.

For each piece of me,

Is another one for you.

None of this is mine

It's just yours.

Each piece

Sheds itself

From my being,

Until there's nothing left

Besides a false smile,

Lying on the ground

As I tell myself

I'm happy!

This is how it's supposed to be!

Nothing left for myself,

But the fake joy

From giving myself completely

To those strangers.

Forgetting who I am

To fit their perfect dreams.

Forgetting what I was

Besides a sacrifice

For the greater good.

Is this how life's supposed to be?

Just broken pieces of a being,

Left to be fought over by others,

Left to be forgotten as a person,

But remembered as a thing,

But remembered for their sacrifice,

While hiding their unhappiness from the world

While hiding how they truly feel.

Is this how life's supposed to be?

Are we supposed to be nothing more

Than something to be used

For the benefit of others?

Because at this rate,

I'll become nothing more than a sacrifice

Of false smiles and false hopes.

But that's just life.

Isn't it?
