Worse Off

Is not a motivation for gratitude.

The kids who can’t get enough food.

The ill who can’t buy treatment.

The people in cages

Those without a means of survival.

Should not be the source of my gratitude.

Not on their necks.

I am angry that I’m granted these things

Arbitrarily, when so many are denied.

The fact that division is used for dehumanizing,

Fuels my actions for change.

I will save my gratitude

For my friends, and my talents.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
