Today You Get Half of Me

today you get half of me
but that is better than nothing
i’ll be as present as i can be
and at least that’s something
so today you’ll have to be
satisfied with
just some of me

i wonder if it is a gross mythology
that i’m to be fully present in everything
the idea doesn’t seem grounded in reality
it just leaves me full of guilt and struggling
with a heightened sense of my inadequacies

so today you’re stuck with half of me
and tomorrow i suspect will be
more of the same thing
and while you won’t be getting all of me
the part of me that i bring
will hopefully be
the better half of me
