The Advice

The advice in your head
That your head gives itself
Is all human stuff,

And most of it is recent
People advice, and even
The ancient scraps you’ve gleaned

Have been filtered by recent
People and opinions and
Was just people stuff to start with.

Small wonder you want to believe
It’s from spirits or saints
Or unique prophets and sages

Or God. Then you trust it,
Although that’s quite the risk
Isn’t it? Maybe you shouldn’t

Trust any advice you give yourself
No matter who the source was.
Just a word to the wise.
