When Life Passes You By

Did life pass you by,
or did you sit there and let it
run laps around you while
you contemplated
the computer, the TV
the phone, or the iToy?

What were you doing
when you felt life pass?

Valuable, interesting, engaging
or checked out
Mentally, physically, and psychologically
dead to everyone
including yourself?

As a child did you dream of
perfectly made beds, mouth-watering meals,
clean carpets, and cleaner children
wrapped up in a cozy sitcom
the envy of your friends?

Did the dream die because
life passed you by or did
life pass you by because you
let the dream die?

It doesn’t matter, you know
because you have it in you
to get back into the race
