Desperation is the energy you choose
to live your life to its near-fullest
I see right through the bullshit
lies you tell yourself everyday
when the moment to turn inward
becomes a knife stabbing at you,
slashing your throat,
I see you reach for the only play-book
you carry, a formula you crafted years ago,
a formula of desperation, reaching outward
for recognition, validation,
it begs at you to release it.
What seethes in you, bites you and
you deflate into a plastic bag,
flaccid, loose, flapping,
pleading for attention
to be seen, to be heard, to be filled,
to be loved, ugh!
It’s diseasing your mind!
Infest your heart with courage
to reach beyond the baggage,
load-up on silence
and release into the wind!
Fill-up with a heart full and solid
in courage, to see
beyond the formula you crafted
of desperation and disparage.
