Is Everybody Else?
by Jonathan Kraft

Is everybody else just like me
deep down inside, do they see what I see
are they thinking things which I have thought
though inside of me, I’ve thought they have not

Am I the individual I thought myself to be, long ago,
Or am I me now, breaking even with everyone at a level of so so
I want to strive out, above all the rest
thought I know “the rest” must pass life’s same test

Am I better, in my own egotistical way,
because I want to change every day
or do all the rest want the same thing as I
and just don’t know it, because we’re not seeing eye to eye?
