Totem Pole--100 Words

Totem pole.

I often feel as if I don’t have a place on life’s totem pole.

What’s lower than being the lowest man on the totem pole?

Some days it feels as if I’ve fallen completely off the totem pole. And, honestly, I’m not always sure anyone notices.

“Suck it up” comes the reply.

“Get over it” is spoken.

Whether spoke in jest or seriously, what good do those words offer?

None that I can think of.

So, call it a pity party if you want.

Or, just call it honest.

I’m just trying to get back on the pole.

  1. I often feel this way, too, Steve. Although, as a man, it probably touches your inner person more just because the way God built you. This bottomness probably feels like an assault to your innate desire to be the provider; the one who takes care of his household and leads the way. I'll continue to pray for you. I'm sure it's a struggle.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I can't wait to read what you have written.
