how’s the food?

how’s the water?

what’s the mood?

where’s the manslaughter?

how’s the aging?

how’s the sickness?

how’s the dying?

how’s the bleakness?

where’s the way out?

where’s the pause button?

what if I shout?

where’s your gut, man?

conquer your need to please,

be at peace with the way it is,

abandon the need to seize,

just breath…

commonality in suffering
