I’m feeling a bit frustrated and down today. Not with the thought of marriage. Just with other things. People. Better things on the horizon. I’m sure. One must have faith in one’self. It might be selfish to some to feel this way, or pointless, but I am guessing everyone feels like this from time to time and it does affect motivation or the way we look at ourselves, no matter how strong we try to be. Personal career goals feel far away. Usually caused from laziness or excuses or letting external things demotivate you. I wrote a small poem about it. It’s based on that moment when someone looks at you and doesn’t care if you are there or not, or when you’re so far down on their priorities that you have no cause for them. We have all felt it. As I stated above. And I guess, in life, we are all guilty of doing this to other people.
The poem called Full Cup. Hope you like it.
The look on their faces say it all;
Your worth to them is little.
There is no point in standing tall.
They will never give you any committal.
They have their use for you.
You cannot move or say a bad word.
Trapped, battered down, black and blue.
A thought for your feelings hasn’t occurred.
Your life is in your hands.
You can use them to paddle on.
Or you can sit there in the stands,
Among the lives of the withdrawn.
You know you’re made for better things.
So never, ever give up,
‘Cos outside the birds sing,
And there you can raise your full cup.
