The wind competes against
The whirlwind you create
In your haste through your day
Rush from one thing to another
Ticking a list of achievements
Chores and expectations
Adding accolades and certificates
Skating on the surface
Flying past meaning and connection
Onto the next and the next
Highly accomplished in the end
When acquaintances fade
And the room is left empty
