The Bottom Line - A Very short story

Pen-and-notebook-png-clip-artby Itai Liberman09 Apr 2020

Everything is okay,
He opens the TV, watching some news;
Reading his emails, walking out her dog;
Do your shift, they said. Buy some toys;
Make sure to be on Facebook, posting.
And he listened, embraced with distractions;
Life is stuck, so why not?

The bottom line is full of thinking that people overlook,
choosing distractions over meaning. Where is he?
“Time cannot be stopped, but people can change their minds,”
He told himself, but it has all changed.

Is everything really okay?
He craved for meaning or drowned in distractions,
But the bottom line has no instructions.
Time will tell; because right now -
“Everything is okay.”
