what i mean

in an effort to find meaning

i seek to compare myself

to constructed meaning

widely accepted meaning

safely played out meaning

socially approved meaning

ridiculous and unattainable meaning

far-fetched and idyllic meaning

extravagant and abstract meaning

meditative and contoured meaning

confining yet defining meaning

knowing inside and out

that i am only gleaning

the surface of meanings

in order to find some unquenchable reason for being
