Imagine One Day You Woke Up & Could No Longer Feel the Emotion of Inadequacy…

What would be different? What has changed? 

If I woke up tomorrow morning and could no longer feel inadequate
I’d worry less about etiquette 

And whether the participle comes before or after the predicate 

I’d worry less in general, about opinions that I now let diminish me

And it seems like they all but finish me 

But instead I suppose I’d feel adequate, 

And say ‘enough is enough’ to not enough. 

I’d take a massive hit of the good life, yeah, that’s the stuff. 

And then I’d channel my enough-ness into my work, my fun, my play, my life, 

I’d likely feel an ending to so much internal strife

That controlled me prior to my self-defeating emotions flying away like carefree birds on a wire

And so little would be so dire 

I might even just take a load off, laugh a little more with a caramel apple sider and cozy up with blankets, and security, and my family and my hope intact, 

All snuggly by the fire.  

I’d feel less like a pauper and more like a sire. 

A king would rise up every day where a gentile use to sleep

And that would be adequate enough for sure

To take many a faithful leap.
