Barest Minimum

Been busy through the years but now I’m scared.

So scared 😟 of being labeled careless.

Moved from trying so hard to being clueless.

I tried to be tasty when you were thirsty but my jokes were considered tasteless.

Been told I try too hard, so I restrained.

But exercising caution is now causing a strain.

You said I do the barest minimum and it caused severe pain.

But reaching for the maximum can be scary.

Once you are told you try too hard, it kills momentum.

We need a national conference to determine the S.I Unit for effort.

Until we meet in that space, the barest minimum seems the safest place.
