We Inherit the World

Oh, we like to break our hearts like we break our backs, lugging loads far too heavy for such slender young spines. We shoulder a debt larger than a car, a house, an education. We sleep deep in guilt’s arms. We carry a thousand stories dying over and over, but haven’t yet learned from their losses. It’s hard to know where to place the most painful words. Day in and day out the sun sets into our chests, stomachs full of food, yet empty of sustenance. Wishing not to melt into the crowd of those with bitter mouths, those without laughter, those who turn their heads. And like this, we inherit the world.

  1. Instead, we can be Great by being more grateful, feeling what we have in our hands, never making a fist because we fear crushing hope. We get caught up in someone eyes, never leaving their sight until we can see what they see. We can question less and answer more, we can believe in more by doubt less, we can stop relating trustworthiness to gullibility and realize being gullible is being around people you don’t trust. We can inherit a world which is wealthier in souls than dollars, Love than hate, joy than pain; we can inherit a world where the sun is always rising because we are set!!!! ~AmazinglyBrash~
    I Love being inspired, so keep doing what I Love….Great Piece

    • Thanks for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful comment! I do wish for a world that is wealthy in ways other than financially… It’s good to know that others have this vision.
