when hate floods rivers of good.

I’m going to be honest with you.
It might sting a little
and you may hate what I’m about to tell you.
But certain people live for crushing your dreams.
They seek out the ones with potential,
the ones with hunger,
the ones with a fire in their eyes
and unwillingness to settle for “no”
or mediocrity.
They will tear your hopes to shreds
if you let them get close enough.
The foundation on which you built yourself
will be targeted by the ones who are unhappy with their own lives.
And when they try to suck your soul dry of all things that bring you joy
and peace
and fill your cup,
have compassion.
Know they fear you because you are the strength they wish they embodied.
You are the light at the end of the tunnel,
the breath of life when faith waivers,
a beautiful beginning, middle, and end
to an epic story
of how inspirational humans still exist.
