Finding Joy in the Ordinary

if you ask me,

what grand adventures I hope for

if you ask me,

how to change the world

if you ask me,

what kind of mountains

I want to climb

what kind of life i want to live

I would say that we all have

undefinable longings

i would say the never ending normalcy

of dirty dishes and shift work

in the day to day space

that is seemingly endless

keeps me stuck in the ordinary

i would say

i don’t know how to change the world

i don’t even know how to pay last months

gas bill…
