The world is breathing right beside you—


Your strength doesn’t come
from the warm womb of
mediocrity
If you thrive there
You are vapor


Trinkets come from hard work
From pain, not suffering
Knowing you are not
where you want to be
and,

knowing
you will never be


knowing that,
and swallowing that,


is
the secret
