The Opposite of Apathy

Rainbow1 (1)By Ric Hudgens

When it comes to apathy
it’s not the whether but the where,
not the if but the when,
not the can but the must.

It’s the antonym of focus,
the essence of overlooking,
purposefully not seeing
what demands recognition.

The opposite of apathy
is the wholeheartedness
I will not waste on them
but reserve, wholeheartedly,
for you.
