Signs of Success

I was drowning.

Am Drowning.

Filled with failure anxiety.

In the middle of the swim,

The middle of my swing for the fences.

And the request then came.

She wanted me to recommend her

For a promotion.

My opinion, my experience,


My opinion has the power to change a world.

And the work required was secondary.

I am important.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
