are you really alive?

Goodbye David Foster Wallace
Goodbye David Foster Wallace

I went to a lunch
one practicing alcoholic
one newly clean drug addict
and one practicing

You know I hate to define people
but i think whenever
someones coping behavior
is more important then there personality
it might be good
to recognize it

Are you trying to be good enough?

Do you use people
or behaviors
or substances
to feel good about yourself

or do you feel good
is your brain stuck in
some rote type pattern
or are you looking for one
to get in so you don’t have to think

do you have canned reactions
to things

are you really alive?
can you actually make choices?
or are you driven by fear?

do you think your supposed
be a particular person?

is there a hierarchy that you fit in?

are you really alive?
