I am tired
that is who I am today
I am anxious
that is who I am today —
Whoa, whoa there
internet psychology gurus say
you are not tired – you feel tired
you are not anxious – you feel anxious
and you are NOT your feelings
Nor your thoughts
So if I am not my thoughts, my feelings
what exactly does it mean to be human?
How does a soul express itself
without thoughts and feelings?
And while those gurus shout from the webby mountain tops
that value comes from being, not doing
we are not our functions
My paycheck says otherwise.
