“Obsessed” Poetry by Joshua Kraidich

Joshua Kraidich

Sometimes you must look outside of yourself,

And really you will find a lot more there.

Begin to give thought to the commonwealth,

Don’t be swallowed up by your own despair,

But give thought to those who have worse affairs.

Other people suffer too so why wait.

Go find people to help collaborate,

Pray for their needs together then go out.

Head into the world to communicate,

And continue walking down your new route.
