Within an ordinary swamp.

The inhabitants of this Earth
tend to wallow within an ordinary swamp
and when they rise their grime is simply the same
they titter within the shame
as if a yearning for good health
rather than wealth
is a pitiful claim.

I try to think
I try to create
I try to continue
I choose to take a chance and fail
rather than wallow
within the swamp.

Although of others I’ve felt beneath
and yet the further down I creep
the more substance and grime I’ve collected
wearing it as an honor of a new perspective.

Thanks for reading.
