How It Feels

Body breaking down But still one must push on Worth is defined by how hard you work And the people you please From lazy meaningless days To days of working the hardest How does it feel to be needed? It's like a rush Greater than any drug From years of isolation To the forefront of the conversation Even a loser can win So when you want to slow down When you're broken When the tears are flowing You know there's no slowing down Because slowing down Means being forgotten And maybe in the end none of it's worth it When self-worth comes from what others think Blink and the acclaim is gone So you push harder and harder Even as people become concerned Even as it consumes every facet of your life But as hard as it is For a socially awkward guy Every second is a miracle No matter how hard you're breaking down No matter how much it hurts No matter how much sleep you lose Because if you don't have this What do you really have?

Great poem, Christopher. It's interesting to hear this from a man's perspective.
