outlive, lonely, time traveler, poetry, steven humphreys

I had no idea

I’d outlive

everyone and

everything I’ve

ever known.


you outlive them all

living with generations

you don’t know

and can’t relate to.

Sooner or later

you land on who

you decide you

want to be and

don’t seek to

change your nature.

you outlive everyone

every trend

every fashion

every new idea

and invention.


then who do you become?

I’ll tell you who you are…

like our god above,

you become one lonesome

time traveler.
