December 2021 – The Midnight Library

Poem inspired by The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

An unfinished jigsaw of a human;
a waste of a carbon footprint.
Regrets are just bullshit--
be the truest version of you.

Minds can't see what they can't handle.
There was no way of living
that can immunize
you against sadness.
The ground is never stable.

This was all meaningless;
actually a trick
of the mind.
Love and laughter
and fear and pain
are communicating
the breathtaking
majesty of life.
