It All Matters

If there was nothing to matter then what substance would exist?
What would we have to define us as ourselves without matter?
Thus then what purpose is life without matter?
Matters of the heart
Matters of interest
The daily matters that splatters all over your worried mind
Money matters, Family matters, private matters
In titters and tatters
Am I sane or the latter?
I just know I am always worried and I want to know why
Why I let things matter
A lot of people live full lives never mattering
But do they exist?
Sorry now to make matters worse but…
When you make something matter
You learn to live with it and you learn to learn
There is no matter that is not a learning curve
And there is no matter that does not make us reflect on the matter
For if it matters it’s important and we need to know that
If something matters to me it’s important
Hence a part of me, making me matter
A physical being growing with this sustaining substance
Love matters, affection matters, humility matters and as does equality
These are the things that matter to me
Therefore reflecting the very compounds that make me exist as matter
Making it only a matter of life and not death

It All Matters

Artist's Description

This poem is a very early one of mine. I wrote it a few years ago while trying to develop “a style.” That was a short attempt, I might add…

Shortly after I realised that writing is like DNA, should never repeat identically, and should never be limited in structure but a specific template.

Alas I start think about things that matter to me, and start playing around with the word creating alternate meanings, twisting some complexicity to it all.
