Tribes not influencers

By KCPublished 2 years ago 1 min read

Tick, tick, tick

seconds race by

I see it,

the tap of your foot

as you have to wait precious seconds

to get served

to have your needs met...


The want

the entitlement

the head permanently attached to the digital world.

The desperation...

somebody notice ME!

This may be what we are told we need

what we deserve


There is no peace

no comfort here.

These things come from

tribes not influencers,

friends not followers.


When the day is hard

we need a soft place to fall

When the clouds won't fade

and the walls close in

we need someone to sit with us

to simply be with us

Peace comes from acceptance,

comfort from understanding.

Fitting the modern dichotomy




fills neither of those holes in our souls.


this is where we can find out rest

so rebel a little

find your tribes

for there you will find

the space to truly relax.

The warm blanket of friendship

is in a smile

a timely word

a tight hug

or the easy silence

this is comfort

resting in being the best you, you can be.

Connections make this happen.
