A complete moron.
One of God’s miracles.
These, and a thousand other attributes.
Defending, berating, compensating,
tilting the scales my way,
currying favor in others’ eyes,
or my own.
These, and a thousand other machinations.
Instead, searching for ways to actually Be,
To watch the moments carefully,
To let them soak all the way in,
To say ‘Thanks.’
