‘me + world’ or ‘me = world’?
by miriam louisa
is either ‘for’ or ‘against’
your being free
one of my teachers sagely pointed out
that everything is definitely ‘against’
then along came another who shook
her curls and laughed:
it’s all set up for your delight!
how could you bear to miss one morsel?
they were both right of course –
it all depends on whether one’s view
is from the look-out of ‘me + world’
or ‘me = world’
in their compassion and kindness
both gave me the key
to the secret of secrets:
you get to decide which look-out you’ll accept
and which version of the Game you’ll play
you get to decide
[That’s the Game in a nutshell. Which version are you playing?]
