She dreams of all the things

that she never got to do,

like any of it would

make a difference.


Temples and jungles and skydiving

like any of those

make you a better person,

a more whole one.


She dreams of something

outside the routine

that she knows she would hate,

but she dreams it anyway.


She dreams of what would

make her happier and knows,

happier isn’t all it’s cracked up to be,

she’s already found peace.
