Rivaling the Strive

Your heart speaks

The Truth

That you do not want to live.

A mess of expectations

That you aim to strive for

But only know

That you should.

Rather than

That you want to.

Why climb the rungs

That you’d rather break?

Why persevere

When you find

A comfort

In what has been?


As much a “like” gives you a good feeling, comments reach further because someone actually felt compelled to share their thoughts, and then to have someone respond to your work with words inspired by your own…. That is a true and deep honour. I thank you kindly TIMSMIND390256655
