Rebuff

How can a heart that is so heavy

At the same time feel so empty?

How can a mind filled with so many racing thoughts

Find no inspiration in the platitudes they’ve brought?

How can a person with so many blessings

Forget the pain it took to achieve them so quickly?

How can I have so damn much,

But still want so much more?

Will I ever have the sense to say enough?

Or will I be stuck pressing forward forever–

Unable to trust in the present,

Unable to give up my own rebuff?
