The Ungreat Awakening

Location

You know that moment?

I know you do.

When you realize that the things you have -

are just to few.

That shining moment inglorious, spotted

where you just think,

what am I doing?

You see back and shrink from the present

why can't thing be so simple again?

god laughs ha ha ha

at our stupidity, our wistful thinking

he laughs and says, "that's life"

then he vanishes leaving us to our strife.

I would change that. 

Tear up the present and make things good.

Things may not be simple,

but I would change the loss you feel,

because that's the worst part

not god's laughter: ha ha ha

but the sadness that stops and starts

your heart.
