The Road I'm On, The Life I Lead

Sometimes I wonder about my life.
I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder,
do I do it because I like it,
or because
I haven't been brave
So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book,
when shouldn't it be the other way around?
I don't really want an answer.
I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void.
So good night,
dear void.

- Kathleen Kelly, You've Got Mail (1998)
