I don't like to think about the future

For the future feels final.

The future feels like a goal everyone is working towards

That none have arrived at

And none ever will.


I don't like to think about tomorrow

For tomorrow never comes.

As soon as it seems close enough to touch

It turns into today.


I don't like to think about the present

For the present is all the time.

The present is today, tomorrow, and all of the future after that.


I don't like to think

For I tend to freak myself out.

And time isn't real,

So what's my goddamn problem, anyway?

  • the box

    they put me in a box and i want to get out

    "let me go!" i scream

    but the lid is too tight

    they put me in a box but i'm too big to fit

    it's hurting my head

    and it's pinching my skin

  • stars

    it's amazing

    how things that once were nothings

    can shine so brilliantly in the sky

    to be admired simply for existing

    it must be lonely up there

    to attract such attention

    yet remain unnoticed

  • And my home

    It's too hot

    and it's too humid

    and I'm awake too early

    and I miss my home


    My bunk bed is lopsided

    and we let mosquitoes into the cabin

    and the showers are dirty

    and my socks are wet
