Void of Irrelevance (Poetry)

(Copyright 2008)

You know the place between fulfillment and irrelevance?

I’m sort of there right now.

When I can let go of my insecurities,
I’m really not a person that cares about material things.
When I strip away my need for attention,
all I really want is some intimate conversation
and inside jokes with friends.
What I want out of life is peace and serenity,
while making a difference.
I want every step I take to leave an impact,
even if it’s just in my life.
I want there to be laughter and sharing but
I don’t want that laughter to be in vain.

I just feel like I’m in this void where
I’m surrounded by a sea of irrelevance
Without knowing
if I have the strength to rise above it or
if I’ll get swept up in the waves.

  1. You have captured the inner thoughts and painful feelings I have had about my life for decades. If you lived around the corner, you and I would have tonnes to share.
    All the best in your new place 🙂
