Accepted. “In the loop”.

Everyone wants to feel that way

That’s why people look at their phones 34 times a day

They never put their headphones away

It feels so nice to have something to say

That’s why . . .


He posted that

We posted that

That she tweeted

That they needed

A picture of

This or that

But where do real people fit into that equation?

They don’t, and that’s a fact

People look at me like I don’t have a clue

When I first tell them I don’t have a phone

But they never seem to make the connection

I’m creative because all my thoughts are my own

In a world where people know more about celebrities

Than about the way they really feel

I’m constantly reminded to remain grateful

That I’m still . . .
