If I were an octopus
or if there were three of me,
then maybe I would have enough arms
and enough hours
to be all of the places I want to be,
to do all the things I want to do.
At least that’s what I tell myself,
but I know
if there were three of me,
then all three selves
would squeeze into their lives
enough to tax six people
and those six would want
six more. Soon I would get tired
of just looking at myselves.

Oh wonderful. You are amazing with words. And I am horrible at adjectives. Or probably adjectives cannot come close to appreciating your work anyway. Simple yet infinitely powerful.
Thank you, Sumedh. You are very kind.
evidently, but good look with the sequel
Thanks so much:)
