a day

The days we live are quite average,
on average,
our lives are average too.

The yesterdays todays tomorrows:
all similar.
The difference: a slight skew.

A waste of one:
A push to a next:
Another attempt to start.

We live the same day
after day after day:
it’s the only one that’s ours.

  1. the first stanza is lyrical and inviting…the use of “average” three times in a row is akin to the poetic hurdles run successfully! The second stanza skips along playfully then ends in an abrupt “skew”. Then things change. And when you end with “its the only one that’s ours” takes things to a whole new level for me. Thanks. I could say more if you wish.
