Seven Things

Seven Things I Have Not Done

As if Time was a series of outlines to be filled with colour
Each hue a different life value
Who comes up with these things?

Specious Norms and Social Media Seductively Sings of
Seven Things...
I'd never thought;

Was too busy staring over the rim of the abyss
Which, of course, was staring back
Laughing at the things I lack

Always. With the staring.
It stared before I breathed my first and will stare at the place where I was 
After I have breathed my last...
And Fact Fluidity... 

But. 
Enough of this grim melancholy
Let me see... 
Seven Things I Have Not Done
I cannot even think of one.
