Nothing is ever so distant as it seems,
and everything – more or less
is what it was meant to be.
The difficulty is the tendency
to procrastinate from seeing things
for what they really are,
rather complicating them
into what we want them to be.
From the day that we emerge,
it may be a consequence of our own making
that we spend so many wasted years
trying to transfer ourselves to others
so they can give us back what we need.
