These Lives

I feel like I’m being pushed,
moved be something sinister
that knows
more about what I’m capable of
than who I really am.
I’m  not meant to own anything
because everything I buy
breaks down before it’s too late
and any complaint I make
is nothing more
than the shadow of my issues
falling behind these first world problems
and all the people listening
are only standing in line
to remind me of that.
