ANONYMOUS ASPIRATIONS
(11/13/17)

most
are motivated
by recognition

by acclaim

by notoriety

none of which
are legitimate
motivations

they are
simply a need
to be
seen

to show
ass

when we
are able
to do
what we were
intended
to do

in the
dark

in the
silence

in isolation

becoming
all consumed
by the process
to the exclusion
of everything

everyone
else

then
we have
something

a success
to savor
in secret

the only
recognition
required

others
may see
our glow

but they
will never
know

that we
have done

anything

at all
