I am not like you
goalsetters
looking to better the selves you do not love
in your specifics
finding comfort in future-thinking
visualize your ending and forget the means, these
magical successful idols
I do not measure myself
and scowl at missed achievements
I do not want your money, your fame,
your get-in-shape, see-the-world
graduation deadline impatience
I do not see your tomorrow.
There is never a day wasted
in the coolcrystal water I taste,
the food I eat, the love I give,
the words moving through me in currents
each day I learn
each day I discover myself a little more,
and every second is a perfect surprise.
I am not like you-
I live.
