i’m just an ordinary person in a village,
feeding my family, nurturing the earth
and the living beings on it.
i’m just an ordinary person in a suburb,
balancing the best of both,
feeding, nurturing, easing, exploring,
for self, family, neighbour.
i’m just an ordinary person in a city,
wanting the best of both,
hunting, gathering, exploring, driving
for me and my family.
i’m just an ordinary person in a metroplex,
loving the hype, glamorous life,
getting the best, wanting the rest, searching
formulas, sanity, membership.
i’m just an ordinary person with a passion,
just trying a little extra-
going the extra mile, for me, him, her, and you,
being with the ordinary.
life and i both are ordinary,
in a village, suburb, city, or metroplex,
what i get used to, is my ordinary.
