I Live With A Ghost

I live with a Ghost

That tells me

I’m no good without money or fame.

My neighbors have it all, I should have some shame.

I live with a Ghost

That tells me

They know it all — from politics to pilates, and from sports to Spain.

I should be the jack of all trades for life is no Nintendo game.

I live with a Ghost

That tells me

They have it all — from avocado to gin, and from K-pop to coffee pills.

I should do the same, also not default on my bills.

I live with a Ghost

That tells me

I need do it all — from networking to kickboxing, and from trading to baking.

Because life is too short to be just plain boring.

I live with a Ghost

That tells me

I should have a perfect plan backed by a plan B, and I should also be agile.

Because life is nothing but fragile.

I live with a Ghost that

when I’m an emotional wreck,

pats my back,

when I’m sobbing,

comes around cheering,

and when I’m feeling down,

lifts me up from my emotional dungeon.

If you’re reading this, please tell me, do you also live with a Ghost like this ?
