The Inner Partisan

Comforting it doesn’t care,
If what you dread is malice.
As they said of Bai Juyi,
There’s extreme simplicity
In lessons apparently
Impossible to apply.

The world unfolds as the world
And will kill you but intends
No harm. It would be simple
To be at peace with it all
If you weren’t human, in pain,
And fuming from inner fires.
