What’s going on?

what would you say
to your future self:
accept insignificance.
swallowed misconceptions
accepts awareness.
conscious of life,
but that’s all.
it’s taken how many lives
to realize what we are?
in the end,
we are nothing more
than the dirt we play in.

Hearing a thought of hearing

i’m not sure if you can hear it, but i do. it’s strange. no, who am i kidding, it’s very common. we hear what we hear, regardless of what others hear. sounds pitched to waning attention. did you catch that because i thought i heard what i didn’t hear. since when should i think to hear?
