To Be What We Are Not

We are so eager
To be
What we are not
That we never
Quite become
What we are.

We are so hungry
To have
What we lack
That we never
Truly possess

i have never
been myself
until this
fleeting moment;

and yet,
the moment
is gone,

and so,
am i.

Hi, Mr. Gobley! I like this one. It's -- well, it's just true, nothing more or less.
