The Gift - Poem by Thomas Lawrence

i panicked
when i realized that
the gift
no longer belonged
just to me

that i owed
the force,
of nature,
of God,
every witness,
every teachers
(every body) .

i suppose connection
should have been enough
brought me closer
less afraid, not more

but i felt the chasm
the uncrossable distance
like a teen alone in his room
pretending to be a rock star
