Poem #11; NaPoWriMo

Poem for Monday – Untitled

It’s a so fast city life
Day today. “One day,”
I dream, walking down
A city street, “One day,”
I say, pounding hard
The pavement, “I will
Have a better job,
A better life for me
And mine,” my mind a million
Miles away, my sights
Set on imagined things,
So focused I see
No one nor do they
See me, the mobs,
Passing, brushing by me,
Walking somewhere briskly
Where they are needed
Very badly, while I travel
On a city street and think
Random but relevant thoughts.


Not new. Circa a long time ago. 🙂

  1. existential pout..I first thought …but more than that… as I read on…an appreciation of others and universal “Random but relevant thoughts.”

    you tug in a lot of ways


    • Yeah, this is an old one, so I tried to scrub out the worst of the poutiness. I’m only slightly less pouty these days. 😉 Thanks for reading, Doug!
