chasing(the wrong)dream

he said
he was
worried
he would be
the guy
that just photographs
the sunset
at the beach
he wanted
to be known
for more

i understood
but as we walked
hand and hand
and she told me
his fear
it dawned on me
that a lifetime
of sunsets
over the ocean
beats the shit
out of being
ground to dust
chasing other’s
approval
