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?
