Far Side

11/26/20 Took a long car ride And went to the far side There's no good in apartheid You're darn right Handled and dealt with hard times Underneath starlight Make it count and contribute I do not kid you It's true Composition of bones and tissue Battles with issues In order to get through Got to continue In lieu Of just reaching for tissues Because it didn't work out, and you withdrew Meanwhile, calmly or fiercely the wind blew Hiding or showing Drying or flowing Dying or growing Time never slowing Continually going I do my own thing Too many folks egos are far too big They act like a pig And think they are a king Such pettiness, I do not dig I don't like to brag I don't think 'I got life in the bag' I don't want to lag I don't mean to be a drag I don't like to put up a white flag I like to win, very competitive, even when caught in a snag Through life I zig and I zag With animals whose tails continue to wag
