Given Status

Do you understand what it feels like to be a rock

sedentary, unmoving, unyielding with large mass

though the truth is

there are ants below you, steadily carrying you

moving you forward, picking you up

and keeping you going, unaware as you may be

progress is happening slowly and steadily

even when you feel you are standing still

you ever wonder how it feels to have that mind

the one that never turns off

that feels pain more consistent than serenity

due to memories, lack of and abundance of

overwhelmed at all moments, just a mere push

is all that is needed, so close to the edge

more often than not, already dangling

hanging and struggling on a brittle limb

pulling yourself up daily just to keep alive

feeling pierced with shame, pain, and pride.
