Long enough

If you sit there long enough
You might come to see
That the world is bigger than your problems
And it will keep spinning on its axis
With our without you.
If you love for long enough
You will come to know that being ‘right’ is overrated
And it is better to simply be
With the ones you love
Than win in every circumstance.
If you keep showing up for long enough
It becomes clear that applause
Was never what you really needed-
Belonging was.
It takes time to become fully human-
There’s no hacking it.
Life has a way of bringing us what we need
If we hang on long enough.
