the nervous system
as calm as a lake,
while tsunamis are brewing in the ocean.
“don’t do this.”
“don’t do that.”
“be like this.”

other than entitled.
the generation of lazy children
taking too long to become adults.
but what about the positives?
they never seem to matter as much.
the most reliable friends we have.
