In this Space and Time

Breathe
Take a second to breathe
A diaper needs changed
Immediately
I'm a father.

You
Intimidated by nature
A pill bends my creator
Finally
I'm relieved of anxiety

I
Certainly I
Can handle this
Just like you
But, who are you
Really?

The clothes I wear
And the environment I reside
All crash and collide

I
Without a filter?
There is no purity
I'm a product of my environment,
Really.
But, where am I?

In this space and time
When neither do exist,
I can't attest to agression,
Nor innocence.
A waking student, a worker,
A father first and foremost
I'm not nothing,
Yet, I am not certain.
I am something,
Yet, I am not certain.
