alcanzar

confused, too young to have a midlife crisis

amused, too old to not be concerned with the prices

consumed, with the pressures of vices

assumed,

actually i grow tired of writing in this form.

for i am free.

just when freedom seems to be within grasp,

i reach, but life pulls a plastic bag over my face and tells me to suck it in and wear it as a mask.

suffocating.

breathtaking.

i reach for the stars but they’re already dead in the present time,

all we see are ghosts of the pasts

legends that still shine.

someday

i hope to be like them

but do they know so many of us look up to them.

alcanzar las estrellas

reflections off of el mar

muerto, como ellas

i just want to be the sun, not another plummeting star.
