The Things That Matter

Just breathe.

Remember that
you will never be
as important to them
as you are to yourself
and that what they
think doesn’t matter
in the end, anyhow.

Don’t waste your breath
or any moment more
than necessary on the
thought that what they
require equals all that
you are worth.

This day is of
no consequence.
This task is
of no import.

The things that matter
are real and tangible.

Not the detritus
that greets you
every morning
but the warmth
that welcomes
you every night.
