Poem – Living in a Movie

Poem – Living in a Movie

Do you ever feel like you are

living in a movie?

Everything feels so surreal.

Everything feels so unreal.

One day, everything is groovy.

Next day, everything is chaos.

The scene has changed

so instantaneously.

Everything has become

so dramatic.

Some elements are

literally tragic.

Everything is in a tailspin.

High intensity

crash and burn.

Are you even still alive

through all of this mess?

You take a deep breath

and you say, “Yes.

I just dodged a bullet

and I am under duress

but after all that,

I am still okay

and I have lived to see

another day.”
