Some of us

have more to contain

to be little rays of sunshine,

day to day,

but that doesn’t mean

it doesn’t do us more good

to be sunshine

than for us to complain

about our rain.

I heard the rumble of

my grumblings

and wished

and wished

and wished

for what was glorious and joyful

what was fun and focused

what was

ah

what was.

This is uncomfortable

unsettling

unsatisfying

unbearable.

I heard murmuring

everywhere.

Everyone

grumbling

wishing

wanting

longing

for what was,

what no longer can be,

looking

for change again.

Everyone

and

me.
