Fidget and Desire.
Which one takes us higher?
The fidget makes you anxious to get moving, choosing
While desire makes your dreams amusing, approving.
But is Higher where we really want to go?
Or is life lived better fully in the Low?
Man was meant to live in plains, or so I’m told,
And that mountains can get old, and air streams cold.
Am I better with my neck ache craned to skies?
Or are you, with earth below your soaring eyes?
And in truth, if you see me and I see you,
Can either really see the other’s point of view?
