We stare blankly at the same computer screens that we spent all of yesterday staring at.

We sit in class, or at work, or around our family without taking any of it all in, without realizing just how lucky we are to have it.

We stick to schedules because we fear what will happen if we don't.

We keep life in the monotone until one day we need to just feel alive. At that point we run across the freeway. Or breakup with the love of our lives.

We change our diets because to us that could make all the difference.

We do our very best to keep the love that we have for people hidden, because we'd rather not know if it's unrequited.

We take drugs in a vain attempt to connect with something.

We spend so much time trying to chase happiness that we can't even recognize that we already have it.
