It will present itself to us in the future
some time after becoming old and alone
and a little while before we start to nibble
on kibbles of delusion
with teeth which are no longer there.
The opportunity to finally get right
what our ego had gotten so terribly wrong.
When we were young enough and
foolish enough to believe so many needed
so much from us.
Arrogant and ignorant as we were
on how bankrupt we actually are.
We will finally understand.
That we are not hated for what we wouldn’t give them
but for what we didn’t let them keep.
