Being A People

It’s not easy,

Being a people.

When some days,

The idea of being inanimate


Maybe a…..chair,

Or a boring book

That no one wants to pick up and read,

Seems much more appealing

Than being a people.

It will pass.

Mind you,

I don’t mean to imply being a chair or a boring book is easy.

But it surely beats

Feeling like an inanimate people.
