Ennui-slapping warrior

someone once told me
that I’m good
at slapping ennui

didn’t really know
what that meant
til recently

listlessness and lethargy
in every corner
that I meet
seemed like
I’d always be
from despondency

melancholy and unease
satiety can’t be achieved
but through all these lies
my throat can’t choke down
I must stay fresh
with optimism

for this life is but
one rambling lesson

serotonin to survive
of which I get
in well dosed highs

I’ll conquer this
then be surprised
at all the times
I refused to fly
then skipped right through

first to the finish line
