On hype

Sometimes the hype is NOT overrated.
Human excitement is not worthless,
Enthusiasm is priceless and
Motivation can be borrowed
For we don’t always have it in us.
Vibes aren’t a flaw of modernity-
They are an essential life force
That drives many of us along.
The often-scorned energy of a crowd
May not be enough to sustain us
And indeed group-think has the the power to lead us astray
But it can also keep us
From taking ourselves too seriously,
Restrain us from self-indulgence
And can certainly give us
A much needed lift
Along the way.
