Wasted Talent – Waiting for Approval

How many talents
How many endeavours
How many lives
Are lost
Waiting for approval
From some authority or majority
Remotely passing judgement
On what it does not comprehend?
.
Who stops to count the cost of waste
Languishing by the wayside?
.
Such is the cost of elitism
Such is the cost of populism
Such is the cost of singling out
Or singling in
One from many
.
Consider this:-
Everest did not make the Himalayas
The Himalayas made Everest
Each in their unique way
Within the others’ influence
Called into motion
