it’s all been done

a ditty

there’s actually nothing

new under the sun,

it’s all already been done.

I know your ego hates this shun.

It likes to keep you from having actual fun.

In the name of things being won

or coming up with some ‘new’ pun

which is really just a rehash of something already…. done (used that already) by someone

whilst punishing your body on a morning run?

Imagine if you weren’t like everyone

and rather than care about being outdone

or all your baggage to overcome

you decided on purpose to wake up like your life has just begun

  • You'll probably find something to hit me with if I tell you what I think of when I wake up 😝😝 But what you have mentioned here, decide on purpose to wake up like our life has just begun. Loved your poem!

    Ah yes!!! Different costumes and the same characters 🎉😳 something about knowing we aren't super original is comforting

    Great and thought provoking poem Kayleigh 😊. I literally had similar thoughts recently as well when writing a poem. We're probably not unique (in most ways anyway) but that shouldn't stop us from living!

    Ah, we humans do struggle with wanting the social safety that comes with a little status, don't we.
