Loved ones,
and new arrivals
consume the chatter of those in my life.

As their lives progress
and I stand still
between the pages of these theories,
I can’t help but feel
-left behind.

Am I moving too slow
or even in the right direction?
Is it too late for me
or will my road take me somewhere new?
Am I meant to follow their same lives
or will I constantly have those mixed connections?

I admit that my thoughts consume me with fear
that maybe…
just maybe some of my dreams
will consume me and it will be to late
and I really will be
-left behind,
