mortality

I can’t walk this walk
like I’m immortal
I can’t love these people
like I’m immortal
I can’t shrug things off
like I’m immortal

I can only fall to my knees
like I’m mortal

gratuity

I want to say thank you
but that has a touch of finality to it
like a moment has passed
so instead
I’ll look at the sky
and see what the stars have to say
