Before Existential Angst

The minuscule girl with an oversized red hat
whisked away by brisk winds,
The teeny-bopper that <3ed Leo,
The idealistic student lusting over
medical school and, sigh, her teacher,
The Southern debutante that lost her way
in a big ol' concrete metropolis,
The health nut begging her will
for a Big Mac and cigarette,
The young woman that had yet to grasp
the seriousness of death.
At times silhouettes appear at the door of my mind,
reminding me of moments in my life when I was better than myself.

Too short. Seems more like an act in futility than existentialism.
