Real

Every second there’s a death of self,

a death of the people we were

a second ago

and a line of ghost selves stretch out

behind as we surge forward,

or ahead as we fall back.

When we stop and breathe

in the present,

all the shades, of our children,

parents, teachers and friends

are forever gone,

were never there,

and nor were we.
