Modern Window Dressing

I’ve become so attuned to that which isn’t real

And with each injection and photo filter, I too, drift into that ethereal space

To know and be deeply known is what I say I want

But I fear that I am already gone, floating atop a wave of likes and manicured selfies

Updating my status while my children try to get my attention

I don’t understand why “be here now” is the hardest commandment to keep

I don’t understand why “tell me about yourself” is the hardest question to answer

  1. Sara…I love your blog and your poetry! You are so right…why is “tell me about yourself so hard”!? Looking forward to your podcast and stories. You ladies are the bombπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜˜
