Consider This

Consider this
your mind racing
beating
with
every thud

Consider this
eyes that comply
and a mind
that counts..

when.. reading..

Consider yourself
naked
no rules
no guilt trip

Consider yourself
aware
of past
future
and present

Consider yourself
bold, brave
fearless
staring back
at life’s ambiguity
and giving it the finger

Consider yourself
spontaneous
borderline careless
jumping at any
opportunity
without enough time
to process the aftermath
until
its aftermath

Consider yourself
in love
selfishly, selflessly
lustfully
and insanely
to understand
the meaning of chemical imbalance
have a taste mental illness, a day in a straight jacket
for a change

Consider yourself
unstable
enough to pursue happiness
the simple one
that makes your heart laugh
and your face glow
that magic

Consider yourself
able
of anything
and everything
able of painting
over blankness
and blackness
and gilding
cracks
and forming new worlds

Consider yourself
intoxicated
with the pleasures of life
high on emotions
hyper on thought generation
ecstatic on ideation
drunk on writing

Consider yourself
dominant
in control
of situations
whipping them into shape
and inking your mark
on every single
high and low
in every row

Consider yourself
to be yourself
why
change for
consideration?
