SUBJECTIVE SEVERITIES
(6/21/19)


so
often
we suffer

mainly
self started
from unseen
torments

internal
conflicts

diseases
of the soul

others
do not understand
the origin
of our pain

which should
lead us
to evaluate
our heightened levels
of discomfort

if
no one else
can sense
the source
our distress

how bad
can it
really be?

sometimes
just that simple
realization
goes a long way
to assuaging
our aches

mitigating
our maladies

allowing us
to uncurl
from the
fetal

to stand
up

and motor on
purposefully

through yet
another day
