Do You Ever

Do you ever just wake up

And wonder where you are

How you have gone here

And what you have become

 

When you look around

And notice how everyone

Has the same look as you

That lost look

 

People and things

Are not at

where they are supposed to be

Their souls are stuck in a matrix program

Which probably explains the lost look

 

They know

Their real home is at somewhere else

 

The sunset makes the whole busy city go golden and then blue

And then comes darkness

And the long nights that eradicate our doubts

for the authenticity of our existence

 

Then follows

the smell of freshly cut grasses

First cup of coffee in the morning

The blood-like red roses

That make us say

What a wonderful world

 

So we move our eyes away

From the mirror

The spoon we use to eat cereal with

Where we can see our own reflections

We move our eyes away from

The things which remind us

Of the questions we all have in mind

The authenticity of our existence

 

Or how much we try

To not dwell

on the lost look we all have

From time to time

Since before everything started

 

We talk and smile

with sadness and anxiety

in our subconscious minds

We see the skin the hair the fine array of people we interact

Trying to find meaning at the wrong places, on the wrong people

 

if you look closely enough

You will notice

the lost look we all have from time to time

For far too long
