Vantage Point

By Justine C. Tajonera

There are days when
nothing seems to work,
the horizon looks bleak,
a commitment feels like
a burden.

There are days when
the structures you put in place
to help you keep things together
makes you feel like
you're in a prison.

These days of disenchantment
are sure to come,
like any season or
law or cycle.

Those days will come
but your view is the only thing
you can change.
Nothing else.

So, I do not wish you
good days continuing or
a forecast of good weather
all your life.
I only wish you a good view
and a place to stand
when all things crumble around you
and all you have
is who you
