everything everywhere all at once

right now
somewhere
a child is breathing
its first

and someone somewhere
is taking their last

right now
somewhere someone
has fallen
and another has risen

somewhere a storm rages
somewhere a gentle breeze

right now
someone is speaking hate
and somewhere else
someone
is falling in love

in this moment
all over the world
life is happening

and all the things
before
and all that will come
after

from before the big bang
to after the big crunch
is all connected

whether we experience it
or not

we are everything
and everywhere

all at once

a side of me

there is
a side
of me

I do not
like

a part
that feels
unheard

it rages
and I am
in its grip

lost to
madness

there is
a side
of me

I do not
like

and
I have
to live
with the
consequences

of my actions

cannot erase
what I’ve done

there is
a side
of me

I hate

and wish
never to see
again

(D. James)
