We act as if we are.
I can’t help it if some people (using that term loosely, mind you) act as if they are not. I am not responsible for people who deliberately choose to be less. It isn’t because of me, or because of how I voted, or any other reason than the true one – they CHOSE.
I can’t help that, but I can condemn it, and we as a group can prosecute and punish it, and so we should.
While the rest of us act as if….we ARE…..human BEings.
I am ashamed that I have not cheered you on as I should have done when you were awarded an honor (and I was not).
I admit, my first thought was how will this work, when you are, and I am not? How will it fit, and how will we fit with it?
I did not demonstrate to you (like I think I should have) that I was proud of you for being wanted, at least not as much as I think it deserved, because I was thinking about me, us, and how it all would work out.
I apologize, and please know that I am cheering for you. Congratulations! You deserve it!
Not about cats, who already understand
things that could be and aren’t….yet
are not worthy,
even though prudence (another human thing)
demands planning, storing up –
I refuse, because
sufficient unto this day are its concerns
and tomorrow, Scarlett,
is another day I have not yet been given.
I will love you today
and rest as I need.
I am not the leader of the free world or the enslaved one
and that was never my goal, anyhow.
Today I will love you.
The potential horrors of potential tomorrow
will just have to wait.
Today, I am too busy loving
to worry about what might happen tomorrow.
And anyhow, when tomorrow IS today,
there will still be love to give.
