Unreasonable Facsimile

Am I alive?

I mean,

really alive?

Am I here,

now,

in this space,

completely,

totally,

and without reservation?

Or am I merely

occupying this seat,

breathing

and barely existing?

Am I an avatar,

or some shadow?

An unreasonable facsimile

of a person

who could have been

anything,

but wasn’t,

isn’t,

hasn’t

even tried

to taste the bright air.

Just a figment

of a daydream.

Am I really here,

for real?
