30 In 30- Feb 18th


Your life is a tall drink of water.
It is all your happiness, worth, livelihood- all.
Imagine it never spills, just figuratively, for a whole lifetime
Not even for the prospect of being selfish
This is your self-worth we are concerned with.
Are you worth anything ever at all?
And this glass slowly fills, slow as it possibly can
At first. Through the hard years.
But this glass is designed to get you through them.
You can do this.
It picks up pace, though, and soon.
The droplets that fill are teary and lovely and
All sorts of the miraculous things one can
Do in a lifetime
And this is when it dawns on you
That your glass is actually quite tiny.
But it is full.
Simply let it spill.
