Nothings and everything’s.

Before you were strong
You were weak.
You were the lone wolf.
You were the bottom of shoes.
You were a dust mite playing hide and seek.
You were a hole in a wall.
You were the three in the morning breakdown.
One day you realized.
You were oxygen,
Simple, taken for granted, but essential.
You were the tree, providing for all.
You were a slice of bread in a malnourished mouth.
A trash can on a curb.
You were a thought.
You were punctuation.
You were strong.
You only had to realize it,
Then, you were everything.
