It Was Only a Dream

Brushing teeth, drop cap on the floor

You idiot. Can’t do simple thing.
At school, walking to class, forget a book


Why are you so useless?
Took a test, get it back, B+

So incompetent.
Job interview, nervous, stuttering
You won’t get the job.

In my car, see a red mustang, driving past

His car is nicer.
Visit friend’s house, so big, and so beautiful

You don’t belong here
Drive home, homeless man, give him a dollar

One dollar? So selfish?
Look in mirror, wash face, wash it again, and again
And again. And again. And again.

Why so imperfect?

Next morning, toothpaste spills everywhere.
At school, walking to class, book stolen.
Test back, grade F.
Job interview, nervous, missed it.
In my car, see red mustang, in car accident.
Visit friend’s house, so big, on fire.
Drive home, homeless man, smoking.
Look in mirror, wash face, again, and again, and again…

Then. Wake up.
You’re perfect, voice says.
