Perseverance

I.

I wonder when exactly

Everything became

An act of:

Packing your bags

And leaving,

Leaving your bags

And leaving,

Leaving?

II.

A smoke machine

Suddenly malfunctions

And black glitter

Shoots out instead;

Another pretty accident

That no one cares about.

III.

I do not want to

End up like

A lone lipstick

In my purse;

Persevering

In the face

Of utter inutility!

  1. We all face such moments and they often do pass. One of the greatest feelings is being valued. It begins with valuing oneself. Difficult decisions often fall into place. Beautiful writing as always, Aaysid! 🙂
