The World Intrudes

Posted: May 1, 2018 in Uncategorized

State of mind afraid of a thought
not a resistance to competence
when you think things through
it comes around to you
now whatcha gonna do
wherever you turn something is required
consequences unintended and otherwise ensue.

The problem with tranquility is it sets you apart
peace and quiet equals isolation and solitude
and everything is fine until the world intrudes
disasters major and minor crashing on your doorstep
open up accept what comes
close down resistance is futile
let it in keep it out breathing in breathing out.

Balancing on a seesaw
from this tottering precarious perch
the world quakes constantly
no vistas remain uninhabited
see something say something
see something do something
or continue to believe nothing is required.
