I've anticipation and trepidation when it comes to the life I lead.
This is nothing new or just realized.
It never has been.
I have come from modest beginnings;
From a family that equally has eternal and no memory.
We, I can take it as it comes; God willing or not.
My peers, my associates, my fellow man is the same.
To cut a clear path through this jungle, this garden,
I have done everything within my power (and nothing) to guard myself and my family;
This includes friends, from that withering feeling of boredom,
That feeling in the fiefdom of the self.
Don't worry about being alone; why would I ever do such a thing as that?
Don't whisper to yourself when others are near- speak out!
Enjoy, entreat yourself to the company around you; do it for them.
Do it for you.
Be something, be anything.
