Invitations Meant For All


The doing of routines,
Become less felt as beneficial.
There is an emptiness assessed to be superficial,
Remaining fixed in maintained, sustained stubbornness...
For the ones that have become disappointed like this.

Absent are valid thoughts,
Wanting change with those wishes done.
Absent is the wanting of fresh air to breathe,
Or a desire for that to come to leave behind sorrows.
Although it is very clear the Sun rises daily to appear.

Uninvited is the feeling when invitations meant for all...
Aren't accepted yet rejected by those with eyes closed,
Who have abandoned wishful dreams.
Even if it seems,
What comes to shine brightly can remove their gloom.

Absent to dismiss are valid thoughts once existing,
In the minds wanting change with those wishes done.
Absent is the desire of fresh air to breathe that inspires.
Or the initiative to come to leave behind addicting sorrows.
Although it is very clear the Sun rises to appear,
As done for 'anyone' taking steps with recognized kept faith!
