the cause is more than you

gnawed by more than self doubt

this dynamic begs to be questioned

ripples in the shallows

can feel pretty rough

drowning in the 

clutter that surrounds us

a simple space is what we seek

envy, green and fiery 

catches the sunrise

but it is not ours

already taut with angst 

your ghosts have proved nothing, yet

hiding now has you lost

confidence was last seen 

blazing red in corners

on all days

raising courage does not come easy

often, its arrival is never met

all of us are afraid

fear does not prevent existence

it may be time for less searching

inside the thoughts of others

our words wear boundaries

while they sit unreleased 

it feels unrelenting and enormous


a paralyzing weight

can only be lifted by just one
