Moving On

What hurts about moving on
is knowing that what you
once had is now gone. Now,
thoughts don’t skip a beat,
just like a record stuck on
repeat. Flashes of the past
dash by on the other side
of our eyes. Moving on is
like skipping your favorite
song: it just feels wrong.
Pain becomes strength.
Misery becomes history.
Doubt becomes acceptance.
Moving on is going forward.
Staying back is waiting for
life to attack. Don’t be a
victim to a life you’re given.

Alien-nation

We live in a space station.
Welcome to Alien-nation.
It’s just us for miles and miles.
We have cabinets with files
on each Earthling: something
that helps the Alien-nation.
We’re here and we’re there –
learning new information.
We wait until the night
and prepare beams of light.
Before you know, we float
into the sky and fly away
to be seen another day.
The Alien-nation takes trips
on spaceships. We, the Alien-
nation, live in alienation.
We prefer it this way. We
must give others their space.
Who knows? Someday, Aliens
might face the human race.
