Sailing (Curtains)

There is selfishness

one recognises

even in themselves 

a kind of disregard

for others

so it ripens

believed necessary

self preservation 

nothing else matters

real for a time

until it's understood

self love is AWOL

a step too far

from listening

a hand let go

these times 


feel missing

here then is sadness

simple or global

a numbness 

a bridge too far

but by itself 

the remedy

a voice to



they say

begins at home

small steps all alone

god is a concept

you are humane

I'll say it again 

the actor gone

it's only you and me

people get ready

we float in air

fly through sky

picking up passengers

we are alive
