The Longer View

Posted: December 6, 2020 in Uncategorized

If I do not present myself
I will not have to defend myself.
If you want to fight me
I am not going to be there.
I opt out of the struggle
you’re having with yourself.

I am not your problem
nor am I your solution.
You take issue you take umbrage
take it on faith
I cannot care
and care for myself.

In the struggle for survival I come first
as long as I can stay
out of your way.
My agility is my friend
sapien brains
win mind games.

The longer view
may not include you or me.
Beyond a far horizon
it’s every man for himself.
Let the cosmos shred your skin
spirit has no ego and no point to prove.
