​Three Lives in One

Life is easy 
when you live it slow.

When you live it fast,

there’s too much to know.

When life’s condensed,

it’s too immense

to process all its contents.

It feels like I’ve lived 

three lives in one;

28 years balance this sum

that, often, takes 40 years to come:

College, marriage, children, 

parental deaths, divorce,

home ownership, isolation, 

an existential force,

the tension of abundant duties

mixed with trauma & remorse,

and the growth of self-awareness

clearing, yet, another course.
