TAKE CARE OF SELF, OR ASK FOR HELP?

Take care of self,
or
seek and ask for help?
Yes!
Put one
AND the other
to the test,

in this and that
different sort of circumstances. . .

one soul will sing
the other one will make things better
as she dances. . .

see trees above
and creek
beneath,

growth and streaming. . .
skepticism and belief. . .

this fine January eve,
I think back
to what’s behind
and forward, far,
to what’s ahead. . .

I’ve been here quite a while
but one day will be the last
when I’ll lay down my head
or someone else will do it for me. . .

Maybe people will talk
and remember,
think on my life,
explore me. . .
regret they knew me,
shrug. . .

or,
dare I say,
perhaps one
will think they did adore me. . .

I’m glad I don’t expect to be there,
but perhaps I’d be surprised.
Responses, perchance,
might even
floor me.

    This is beautiful. I also think about whether there will be people who will genuinely miss me when I’m gone…
