Saturday - People

A dream, an idol, a vision
Of how we want our lives to be
The people we want to be
Cuz naturally how we are now
Is not enough 

We hear other people's voices
We hear their pain and grief, guilt and sorrow
Craving and addicted to those moments
Of happiness, belovedness, chance joy 
Never enough

We intimately know other people's lives
Notice the girl next door's cycle of bad boyfriends
But it's all just sound waves carried in the wind
What makes people people
Is it enough?

Diagrams of musclature, print outs of brain waves 
Only fully defined by interconnected webs
We are us and all the same uniquely
God's creative writing in light 
Simply enough
