The Poetry Snapshot: Waking up to Yesterday

Rushing to begin my digital day.
Rushing to begin my digital day.
Music on repeat continues to play.
Music on repeat continues to play.

Déjà vu turns into routine,
my life becomes one movie scene.
Every day is the same,
there are no surprises.
Eventually, this monotony normalizes.

I go to sleep and wake up to yesterday.
I need to find joy besides running away
from all the things that are keeping me stuck.
As the holidays approach,
I need one stroke of luck.
One escape. One adventure.
One more thing to hold onto forever,
as we continue to live life like clockwork.
