Don’t Let It Die An Orphan by John Mundahl
Until you’re tired of their exhaust,
Then strike out on your own.
Become friends with your playful self again.
That part of you
The world stanched away
When you weren’t looking.
Choose a different future,
Not the one that looms
As some grim sentence,
But the one that nags to you
In quiet moments.
Don’t let it die an orphan.
“Is the system going to flatten you out and deny you your humanity, or are you going to use the system to the attainment of human purposes?” –Joseph Campbell.
