Matters | A Poem by Guy Farmer

No amount of influence, number of
Titles, material riches, or
Adulation from the connected
Matters to those who don’t
First feel important inside.

Conquer the highest peaks,
Master the most arduous disciplines,
Vanquish the most threatening foes.
None of it matters to those who don’t
First feel adequate inside.

Overcome the most formidable
Opponent possible, the one creating the
Waves of insecurity and trepidation,
The only entity who can tend to
These matters, you.
