Grateful. A word defined through its use.
Whether your greatly grateful
or ably hateful,
You take the reigns on your emotions,
funneling them into a reservoir
of thoughts and feelings.
Full capacity means the breaking
of a structure held together by a balance.
Not enough only challenges the pure fact
that you are one of many.
But you look inside your mind and see there’s plenty
and question whether the evidence
collected is pollution or solutions
to the illusion of your troubles.
It is but a figment of time,
one that weighs down on the shoulders
of every human with legs that walk,
and eyes that glance at their life passing by.
You could try to escape,
you could suffer through fate,
but from another point of view
that, in all it’s contradictory power,
would deem
to not be grateful.
