the aliens

you may not believe it but there are people who go through life with very little friction or distress
they dress well, eat well, sleep well
they are contented with their family life
they have moments of grief but all in all
they are undisturbed and often feel very good
and when they die
it is an easy death, usually in their sleep
you may not believe it but such people do exist

but i am not one of them
oh no, i am not one of them
i am not even near to being one of them
they are there
and i am here.
