1 + 0 = 0

In many places, particularly the internet,
comment seems to be plentiful and free beyond count.
Though the cost must land on somebody.
One cost that is left un-commented on
is that whether people are care more or less
that what they say is logical
and they credit their sources.

When we only live once,
as far as we know,
careless chatter will use up
what we should give higher value.

Narrow People Are Never As Straight As They Seem

Parents are the people who say they offer forgiveness
when their children stray far into the unknown.

More often than not what they offer their offspring
is a more defensive version of what they give each other
-forgiveness-kept-at-a-distance which is to be redeemed
in full on that rainy day that never quite arrives.

Comparative Suffering

When a person ends their life
before their time who suffers most?

The person who was dying
from inside out who completed
the task that nobody willingly accepts
with a clarity that would otherwise be admired?

Or the family and friends
who live on after the event,
but always hoped
that the coldness inside
the person they knew
would not complete
the task it set out to do?

It takes a great humility
to admit you could not walk
that mile with another
and not just because
they would not let you.

When Humility Means Resistance

Any people who are so in love with themselves
as to think they are the centre of the universe
will be very easy to sell things to; they think
that everything in the world was made just for them.

is the worlds most popular mental illness.
Through sheer ubiquity it dwarfs all the other ways
of thinking out how life might be lived that there are.
