Essentially Pleased

The insects are at peace.

Living their lives essentially pleased.

It doesn't take much to fulfill their needs.

How are they so strong, and I so weak?

 

I feel so scared and weak.

Unable to fulfill such simple needs.

With getting high, I felt essentially pleased,

But now I may never again feel at peace.
