The Aliens

 you may not believe it
but there are people
who go through life with
very little
friction or
distress.
they dress well, eat well, sleep well.
they are contented with their family life.
they have moments of grief but all in all they are undisturbed and often feel very good.
and when they die it is an easy death, usually in their sleep.
you may not believe it but such people do exist.
but I am not one of them.
oh no, I am not one of them, I am not even near to being one of them but they are there and I am here.
