Have you ever noticed how
Desperation sucks the oxygen
Right out of a room,
And yields a vacuum, devoid of space?
A noisy projection of anguish, torment and pain,
Has you sliding softly along the hardwood floor
Normalcy but a scant memory.
In the moment - self discussion.
Giving way to comprehensive dissatisfaction.
A benign questioning
A malignancy that shouldn’t be there
A radical diffusion,
The intermingling of tumor and tissue.
Oh, but you do matter!
Way too many underestimate the power of
Purpose, passion and perspective.
In due course it becomes necessary to
Distance and separate yourself
From those whose inspiration and motivation
Run contrary to your own.
Your life, your contribution to this world matters.
