Self-ish By Default

Posted: June 16, 2017 in Uncategorized

We are both too close to her but in different ways.
We each understand certain facets better than others.
Pooling our insights gives us both a more complete picture.

I’ve got to be honest she was weakened.
She was less of herself and that made the day better for me.
I spent less of my energy contending and resisting.
I relaxed enough to lower my defenses.

This is how it is now things may never be better.
The time comes when change is ever in the wind.
Things may change for good.

I make no demands reflexively resist entreaty.
It is unbecoming to me what I am becoming.
I’m no good to anybody if I’m not true to myself.
Being the bigger person making less of yourself.

Come what may here I am self-ish by default.
