I Want to Evolve

i have nothing
i never did
but i see the patterns
we create
the habitual
we populate

an endless topography
of scapes we've already climbed
reliving our reliving
of our re-relived lives
a life that is
like a construction paper snowflake
cut at the same angles
unseen till the foldout
we are everything we already were
but i want to evolve
want to be something more

I have nothing
I never did
I want to evolve
But I likely never will

Great poem Tim! Our lives are full of ruts and it is so easy to get caught in them. I know I have, maybe that is why this poem resonates with me.
