The Good Part


a lot of the time i find myself wanting to skip to the good part

of a movie

a show

a song

an hour

a minute

a moment

my life

i think i do this so often that it makes me forget about the little good parts

an extra funny joke

a really good coffee

a new song

or experience

or friend

and then i find myself wondering

if there’s ever a good part that will make me feel

wholly good

like i’ve finally made it

i hope i realize it

if i ever get there

sometimes i think

what if i’ve already made it

what if this is the good part

and that might be even scarier
