The Distribution of Internal Forces in a Deformable Body Are Not Necessarily Equal Throughout

You’ve never synchronized well
With your times. Sometimes changes
In the wider human world

Have seemed momentous, while
Your life’s hardly changed at all.
Other times, just the reverse.

Mostly, this leads to a sense
The world isn’t important
Enough and neither are you,

Which has made it difficult
To be excited about
What ought to agitate you,

Great doings at great distance,
Private upheavals during
The large world’s quieter years.

Some day, it will all come down
Together, you and the world,
And then you’ll be passionate

At the end, care intensely
When the wars and peace at last
Combine, but now’s not that time.
