The Direction of Us

“The world is what it is; men who are nothing, who allow themselves to become nothing, have no place in it.” A Bend in the River, V.S. Naipaul

Formidable actions require so little effort
When the focus is on simplicity,
On something.
A man can find a way
Without creating grandiose expectations
Of wealth and possessions.
For a man does best
When he knows who he is,
Someone.
Then the world has another part
Fitting purposefully into the earthly machine that
Wants nothing of lost souls.
