I don’t dance,
because dancing reminds me of you –
I don’t sing,
because I have a terrible voice –
In fact, there is very little that I do.
I don’t cook.
I don’t exercise.
I don’t read, unless the teacher assigns it.
I don’t get high, anymore.
I walk – it soothes me.
I walk, in all kinds of weather.
If I ran, I could escape my past.
But I don’t want to escape my past.
I want to understand it.
