I am not technically supposed to write a poem this week but I’m feeling emotions cursing about me so a poem it is. Also, poems take less time to write and I’m short on time.

Presently, I am Here

I see them

Standing there, sitting there

Talking and laughing

I remember them

When I stood and sat there

With them

But I am here

With this group


I do not mind

How things have changed

The ways that I am different

Experiences, thoughts, actions

Changed me

So this is possibly the place

For me

The place I’ve been getting to

Just as fast as I can

I am here now

Here in the present

And I forget

That they were sitting there

In the first place
