to run away
into the foggy future
because the present is self-aware
and reminds you
of all that you aren’t
of all that you couldn’t be.

every day
you walk into the fog with
a fresh mind.
the fog mistifies your
lack of knowing your way
and comforts you in the
confused steps you take
It helps you to hide you
from yourself
and to hide
all that you are
all that you couldn’t be

entering the fog
you slow down to adjust
into the new environment
that is a breathable dust
that helps you make peace with yourself
that guides you through a discovery of the unknown
but slowly poisoning you with a lack of vision
making you a slave of the high you get from
living one day at a time

When you realise, one day at a time consists
of a foggy future
that has brought you the point of forgetting
who you are
where you are
why you are
the way you are

But you are the way you are
because you forget the past
and ignore the future
while living in the present
makes you feel alone
because you are blinded by
the end of the present
which ceases all that you learned
to start another day of dying every day.
