Check Your Tolerance’s Gap

Photo by Shubham Dhage on Unsplash

Too many people, making too many complaints

Restricting one another

Now they’re over constraint


Dimensions to each other is what they inflict



They’re stuck in conflict

A Future such as this we could’ve predict

A present such as this is what we’re stuck with


It’s easy to see why we’re over dimensioned

Labeling one another, or did I not mention?


People like when people are clearly defined

People hate when people step out of line


Everybody wants someone put in a box

Kept under lock

& Key

Cause it’s easy to see

Something they want to fit their narrative’s plot

Trying to stop

Them will be all that you got


Instead of letting them designate

Your life from the start

The very first date

No need to stop

Cause they will not stop


Don’t hold yourself back for them, just accelerate

Chand your direction and velocity

Get balanced when your stumble,

Keep a high ferocity


Escaping their grip you won’t become encaptured

Becoming someone with grit

You’ll keep yourself enraptured


You don’t have to label yourself

Or appease someone else

Give yourself a hand

You’ll need the help


When you’re over dimensioned

And over constraint

That’s when you’ll encounter too many complaints

When you’re over dimensioned

You’re in conflict

Being over dimensioned

Means being overly strict

Just proper dimension

Your proper space

Then everything else

Will fall into place


All in a mind

Dimensions combine

Congruent with themselves

And each other

Their selves they define

And when their boundaries do intertwine

They’re firm in their forward borders, not falling behind


When others track inventory and keep you in store again

You pay them no mind

Be your mental place of origin

You got it all tracked

In your Comprehension

Now be sure of yourself

And your Proper Dimensions

    "Be your mental place of origin" How true is that? I need to start with myself. I just shared a piece I wrote along the same lines (A Step Back). Great work!
