How did you get in here
How did you work your way into my life
The one I keep people out of

How did it start to get to me
How did I start to care
How did you start to matter
When nothing else does

How did I not see you coming
How did you dodge my defence
How did you get past the walls
      
      Those are lies
                     I let you in

Spirit and matter
The light and the dark
left and right brained
the Ying and the Yang
an outspoken mute
a chaotic plan
mortal and eternal
a pacifist Warrior
ambidextrous hands
A foot on the ground
A head in the clouds
Silence and sound
A teacher a pupil
Reserved with no Scruples
A genius a fool
slave and the master
man I am God
feline and dog
reason and Insanity
A well planned Calamity
I am BALANCE

‘Earth’
maybe a mole
in the mountain of space.
But the story is bigger
than any epic tale.

It's the one scoops
the bottom line
of the bottomless space!

Small simple finishing
tells the complete tale
'as above, so below'.
One that takes into
account all the matter
and the entire space.

The story goes on
The fine earth takes its place.
Now the mountain
sits on the mole space!

I've learned
it doesn't matter
I've learned today
I have more poems than I can count
and how happy I am now
knowing that I may live with a soul
with a little part of me
filled with the most wonderful
feeling of fulfilment
even if I can't sleep
I'm smiling
and listening to my favourite song

it doesn't matter
how much I've had to bear
I'll wake up tomorrow
and have a poem to share.
I can't sleep. 3am already. T_T

you are amazing
in every single way possible

you are different
and that's okay I like different
and I wouldn't like you if you were like the others

you are worth it
you are worth the work
you are worth the pain
you're worth it

you are enough
you don't have to try any harder than you already do
I know you’re trying your hardest
you're enough

you matter
and don't ever think you don't
you matter to me
your family and your friends
you matter so much

you make a difference
my life would be so much worse if it wasn't for you
you make me smile
you make me feel better when I'm not okay

you are not a burden
i enjoy talking to you
you've become a part of my day

can you please just trust me on this
you're amazing
different
worth it
enough
you matter
and you make a difference
get it in your head
it hurts that you don't see yourself the way I see you
this ones for you, you know who you are <3

does it matter if the taps run dry?

the thirsty will say yes

the drunks will say yes if the taps are beer taps


does it matter if the starving masses eat?

the masses will say yes if their bellies are empty

does it matter if the naked are naked?

the naked will say yes if they have no clothes



does it matter if the illiterate can't read?

not if the books are worthless

or have nothing to say or are derelict words



does it matter if thousands die in war zones?

it does if their Gods have picked the other side

that is the worst affront



does it matter if you don't matter?

if your taps run dry

if the poets lie prostrate on a blank page

with nothing to say



Does it matter if nothing matters?


Does it matter if the mortals find everlasting life?

Not if your taps run dry or your belly is empty

or the libraries are full of illiterates



Do you and I matter?

if you are still reading this then something's the matter


I don't matter

How about you?
